Art course just for kids

The National Gallery is offering a new art course geared towards youngsters this October.

Art Elements for Kids is designed for children aged seven through 11 and is a welcomed learning forum that will touch on the basics of all levels of art and design, a press release said.

The art class is designed specifically for kids who wish to strengthen their existing art skills in addition to increasing their knowledge of art and design.

Classes will focus on the elements of design such as texture, line and colour. Kids will explore different materials and forms of art while learning and having fun.

With many years of teaching experience, she is sure to bring a fun and dynamic learning environment to your kids.

The eight-week course will be held every Monday, 3.30pm to 5pm, starting today. The cost is $200, $180 for gallery members.
