Bee Artistic

Art, drawing and painting classes in Newcastle for Children, Teens and Adults

Does your child love to draw, paint and explore colour? Maybe you always wanted to learn to draw or paint yourself but never had the opportunity.

Expressing oneself with a paintbrush or clay is such a liberating experience. Children are naturally captivated by colour, shape and form and their unlimited curiosity along with their lack of inhibition creates a beautiful raw platform for exploring art and developing the mindset of an artist.

Bee Artistic classes at Hive provide an environment of expressive and creative innovation.  Children and Teens are creatively immersed in the principals of fine art: drawing, painting, print making and sculpture  whilst enjoying a pressure-free, relaxed atmosphere.

Classes for 3 – 5 & 5 – 8 yrs:

This is the formative stage where children begin to ‘see’ like an artist, and draw lines and patterns that will form their drawing technique as they grow. Ever curious and keen to try new things, children in this program enjoy a vast range of artistic mediums and art forms, all whilst learning about the greatest artists in history.

Our program is designed to run in 2 week project blocks. In each project, children will learn about the inspiring artist for that project and create an artwork in that style.  Our projects explore a wide range of art forms, including clay and wire sculpture, paint and texture, drawing and charcoal, layering and collage and more.

In our 5-8 yr old classes we group children at tables by age so they can enjoy the company of similar age children while they create their artworks.

Classes for 8 – 12 & 12 – 16 yrs:

Students in this age group are given time and guidance to refine their fine-art skills in drawing, shading, painting and sculpture.  In each class, students build up their skills ready to create a larger project.  We work from easels and use high quality art materials to help them achieve satisfying results.
