Classes cover the elements of art in an informative and fun way. Children exploring using mixed media to create art.

My Philosophy
Children and art are a natural combination.
Children create using their own unique ways.
Environment is the key to unlocking their art abilities
Classes will look at extending and developing each child’s interest in art.
Projects will aim to develop:
• Personal expression
• Enjoyment
• Confidence
• Visual awareness
• Imagination
Technical knowledge will be developed by:
• Experimenting with materials and techniques.
• Solving basic design problems.
• Investigating ideas for painting, sculpture, design, print making.
• Looking at styles of past and present artists.
I believe every child has the ability to be an artist — using their ideas, emotions, and life experiences. They however need the opportunity to learn how to tap into their ability and create visual forms.
Art is visual — the classes aim to develop how the child looks at their environment.
The learning process is fun and based on each child’s interests — there is nothing more satisfying than creating.
There is a school of thought that to enrol in an art class you are thinking of your child being an artist. This is possible but art classes develop and extend the child in many areas to take into life. “Judgement” and “selectivity” to mention a few.
Portfolios
Portfolios are developed over the term — these are a personal record of the child’s achievements and development of art.

Registered for Government $100 Creative Kids Rebate will allow young people to experience cultural and learning activities outside of school from 2019.  Go on to Service NSW site to claim.

From Marni, age 7
“Classes with Margaret are sensational. We have so much fun, learning about different types of paintings. And there is a fun surprise at each class and the end of term party.”
From Monika, Marni’s mum
“Margaret provides a calm and safe environment for creative fun and friendships. Each class is different and Marni was completely engaged in each of her classes over two years. I loved how Margaret encouraged her students to tackle some serious artists in their individual interpretation. They are learning about art by stealth whilst having fun. Simply brilliant! Thank you.”
Best regards
Monika

Margaret of Creative Little Fingers is never short of ideas to keep our daughters busy on art projects. Before they finish their lesson, they are thinking about next week’s art theme.
Irene and I would like to thank you personally for your dedication, inspiration and thoughtful approach to our daughters to learn in a relaxed environment.
We would not hesitate to recommend Creative Little Fingers to other young artists who want to be inspired !
All the best,
Gable & Irene

“My 7 year old daughter has regularly been doing art with Margaret. She absolutely loves it and creates amazing and interesting art work. I also notice that my daughter’s imagination and creativity at home is expanding and I put  this down to her art classes with Margaret. Further, my daughter has some fine motor difficulties and Margaret’s art classes are great for developing her fine motor skills in a fun environment and much cheaper than therapy. The art classes have been so successful that I recently enrolled my 4 year old and she is also loving them and developing her creativity and fine motor skills.”
