Summer Art Classes for Children @ Patch Kitchen and Garden

Art Classes are held every Thursday over the Summer School Holidays: 21st December 2017 to  25th January 2018 (except Thursday 4th January)

 An experienced artist and art teacher, Greta can confidently guide your child/ren with age-appropriate skill development in a relaxed and fun setting while you enjoy morning tea or lunch (and perhaps a cheeky glass of wine!).

Only high quality and non-toxic art materials are used. Students are closely monitored at all times to ensure their safety and participation.

Each class runs for 90 minutes with a short 10-15 minute toilet/snack break (please provide your child with a water bottle).

Please note: art classes are only suitable for children aged 6-14 years. Parents/caregivers are to stay on site at Patch Kitchen and Garden whilst the class is running. This provides you with a great opportunity to grab a coffee and cake or catch up with friends for lunch in the restaurant: Patch Kitchen and Garden
