Housed in the spacious facilities of SPACE, a community hall run by Communify, the relocated studio provides a relaxed and welcoming environment for budding artists. Floor to ceiling windows allow natural light to flood the venue, illuminating the blank canvases awaiting the burst of creative energy from students.

The relocation also allows the studio to expand its offerings. ART101 now provides a breadth of tuition options including weekly art classes, short courses, and workshops ranging from two hours to full day sessions. Students of all ages can enrol – children, teens, and adults alike.

The vibrant pieces lining ART101’s walls are testament to the creative magic that can happen when budding artists have room to freely explore self-expression. Students regularly return to continue developing their style, reinvigorated by the non-judgemental creative community.

ART101 encourages budding artists to get messy whilst exploring their creativity. Now families can unlock that creative excitement together during the upcoming school holidays. On December 15, the School Holiday Art workshop will guide young artists ages 8-15 as they depict Saint Nick’s furry festive feline on canvas. Participants will take home a 25x25cm acrylic painting to commemorate the holiday season.

The session welcomes parents to join their aspiring artists, with spaces available to book separately. ART101 will supply all needed materials, but does recommend sending children along with snacks, drinks and clothing that can handle a few colourful splatters. Unleash the festive fun and register your creative duo today! Visit their website for more information.
