G4 - G6

What are 'courses' at Beehive Studio?

Courses run once a week for a full term of 9-10 weeks. Each session builds on the last. 

Some courses have several day and time options to choose from. 

Each term has a loose theme that shapes what we cover in class. This allows families to register for a full year without children repeating activities. (there is a discount if you register up front for 3 consecutive terms )

Term 1 - Drawing and Painting

Term 2 - Mixed Media and Print Making

Term 3 - Sculpture and 3D creations

We explore the theme using a wide variety of high quality materials and media, building skills, and ending with an exhibition, curated by students, of their own work.

While children will bring home lots of beautiful art pieces created during a course, it is important to know that, at Beehive we place emphasis on process, building skills, and recognizing that creative expression is unique to to each child. 

Classes are small - 10 students in each, and children are able to express themselves in their own style - no worksheets or cookie-cutter projects here!

Registration in a course includes all sessions and materials. 

Missed weeks:

If your child needs to miss a week please let us know in advance. Depending on availability, it may be possible for a child to join a class on another day that week to make up for the missed class.

Refunds on registration are not available. 

Inclusion

All children and families, whoever they are, however they come, are welcome at Beehive Studio. Unkindness and exclusion of any kind will be addressed immediately. If you feel you child may need extra support please get in touch. We will work hard to make sure things work for all of you. 

Ages

Age groups listed for each course are based on our experience of what works best. We know that all children learn differently, and we are happy to accommodate children older than the recommended age in a class. However, we strongly suggest that children younger than our suggested age be placed in a class listed for their age. We are always happy to chat about what option might work best for your child.
