About Helen: I'm a New Zealand registered primary teacher with 7 years teaching in international private schools. For the last 4 years I have been teaching art with 14-17 classes of eager students a week. I also have lots of experience running children's holiday programmes (Detailed Bio).

Previous Classes:

Multi-Media Art Classes: I teach multi-media art classes every term of the school year. These classes cater for students from 5 - 13 years and cover a broad range of art practices in 2D and 3D with media including: drawing, painting, printing, sculpture, construction, and mixed media with design techniques of colour, form, texture and composition. My number one focus is on skill development, fun and creativity!

Asked how they would describe the classes one child said,
"We do fun stuff!"

Structure: Each term the art classes are structured around a specific theme. Within the central theme, subject matter becomes more involved and diverse depending on the age and experience level and fresh activities are provided each term. The classes are limited to 12 students to ensure that each student receives individual tuition. The classes run in conjunction with the school terms.

"As a parent my satisfaction is high.
I would rate the standard of teaching as 10 out of 10."

Cost: The course fee of $ " (per 9 classes in a term) covers all materials, afternoon tea and art shirts. Children can join a class during the term at a reduced cost if there are spaces available.

"My daughter enjoys it. The classes are diverse.
There's different themes every time she goes there."

Term 1 Theme : "Art Naturally"
This term we are exploring art that uses materials that have been collected from the beach, the bush, and the garden! Make dyes from leaves, twigs and shells. Also, making the best use of the warm summer afternoons, we will sometimes take our drawing and painting to the art centre and the botanical gardens.
