ADULT WEEKLY ART CLASSES

Adult courses generally begin in the second week of school terms and run for 9 weeks (in some cases 8 weeks). If individual circumstances make this impractical, depending on the course, we may be able to negotiate a pro-rata enrolment prior to commencement. It is not suggested that beginners will become proficient artists within a single term so we strongly encourage you consider re-enrolling at the end of each term.  

Some courses are more structured and require enrolment for specific periods.  

Course availability is subject to sufficient numbers of participants.
