      Meet Sia

      Sia Cox is an interdisciplinary artist, working across painting, drawing and sculpture. In her art practice, she reflects on relationships between people and place. In 2009 Sia graduated from The National Art School, Sydney and moved to Alice Springs where she spent the next eight years exploring the desert, developing her practice and exhibiting in solo and group exhibitions in Alice Springs, Darwin and Sydney.


      Welcome to Art Buzz! This class is designed to immerse young children (in Kindy to year 2) in the full range of artistic practices, including drawing, painting and sculpture using a wide variety of mediums such as clay, wire, paint, charcoal, inks, and more.  Students are also introduced to major artists and illustrators.

      Come join the rollicking fun of Hairy Maclary and friends as we explore the artwork of Lynley Dodd, illustrator of the Hairy MacLary book series.  We’ll practice being illustrators ourselves by creating fluffy, spotty, hairy, fuzzy & cute animal drawings inspired by the characters in the books!  We’ll play with colour as we develop some painted characters using watercolours and acrylics, and then we’ll create a take-home sculptured playset of dogs, cats and even a basket for them to sleep in!
