The exhibition will showcase original and spontaneous works of art created by students aged 6 to 18 years old.
The School of Art grew from small beginnings in a sitting room in 2000. From there the studio expanded, moving to Oliewenhuis Art Museum where it is still situated today. The studio aims to teach students fine arts and to expose them to different media such as pencil, ink, soft pastels, oil pastels, charcoal, collage, acrylic paint and oil paint.
'The School builds skills appreciation and understanding in fine arts. Working on various art projects and using a variety of media allows students to gain more exposure and understanding of how different media work. Through this art learning journey, our students' observation skills and eye for detail are sharpened. They become more aware of the detail of things around them, and learn to appreciate things with a more aesthetic sense – which was actually one of the main objectives of the Paper Space project that we have been working on during the past months. Students are also continuously exposed to numerous art concepts and techniques in a simplified and fun way.' says owner Nellie Brisley.
