Overview

    Exploring two painting styles and fun projects might be just what you are looking for in your kid's school holidays. This Melbourne activity will bring some colour to their day as they explore both acrylic painting projects and fluid art. These are fun and creative forms of art and is accessible to all ages.

    Acrylic Painting: We will start by practicing to blend paint on a small canvas using a paint brush and then paint some magnets (in square, oblong or heart shapes). We will add some patterns with everyday objects and when dry, use some paint pens and glitter for extra effect.

    Fluid Art: Children will be introduced to the wonder of fluid art where they can create beautiful, colourful pieces of artwork. We will do two fluid art painting on small canvases using the ‘Dip’ and reverse dip’ styles. We will also use one of our magnets to try this style on too.

    NO painting experience is needed.

    This class is for children 6 years to 14 years. Parents / carers may stay as participants, observers or helpers, but this is not required, unless your child needs individualised support. (Please let us know if you want to stay as a helper in the checkout comments as we have limited places for additional non participants). If your child is not able to follow instruction or needs more support than 1 staff to 8 children can provide, then please discuss with Julie prior to booking.

    Great art projects come out of every class but the style and activities may vary! No experience is needed and is completely beginner friendly for every kind of creative kid out there.

    Experienced teacher Julie will support your kids through their vibrant journey of acrylic painting and pouring. Julie has a current Working with Children Check, Police Check and NDIS screening check. You can be at ease knowing your child/ren are in caring, professional and qualified hands.

    Please Note:
    Fluid art needs to lie flat to dry, so it cannot be taken home on the day. It can be picked up from the studio in one to three days’ time.

    Participants are provided with all supplies provided including non-toxic acrylic paint, pouring medium, gloves, apron, cups, tools, small canvas, canvas magnets, painter's tape, and scissors.
    Drinking water will be provided.

At Live For Art, ‘creating art for life’ isn’t just a slogan – we believe that art can enrich and transform our lives! Expressing our creativity brings pleasure, fulfillment, builds self-esteem, and literally colours our day.


We love working with children and run fluid art classes (and sometimes mixed art and craft) in the school holidays and some weekends. In addition children 12 and over are welcome at any class when accompanied by an adult and 16 years plus are welcome to attend any class themselves.


Experienced teacher Julie will support your kids through their vibrant journey of acrylic pouring and other arts and craft. Julie has a current Working with Children Check, Police Check and NDIS screening check. You can be at ease knowing your child/ren are in caring, professional and qualified hands.


We can provide a quote and invoice for NDIS participants.


★ FLUID ART CLASSES


Come and join the fluid art revolution with artist Julie Langdon at one of our Fluid Art workshops. Julie explores a range of different fluid art techniques. Let your imagination soar and create beautiful vivid pieces of artwork with astonishing, complex gradients. Wow your family and friends.


★ ACRYLIC PAINTING


Create beautiful acrylic paintings in an abstract or realism style with Julie or fellow artist Setareh Hosseini. Here paint brushes are allowed as you produce your own unique art under the guidance of your tutor.


★ SCHOOL HOLIDAY CHILDREN'S WORKSHOPS


We now have art and craft workshops just for children. These fun small group activities include fluid art, and may include acrylic painting and lots of other arts and crafts.


Parents/carers may stay as observers or helpers, but this is not required unless your child needs individualised support. (Please let us know if you want to stay when you book.) If your child is not able to follow instructions or needs more support than one staff to eight children can provide, then please discuss this with Julie prior to booking.


Fluid art needs to lie flat to dry, so it cannot be taken home on the day. It can be picked up from the studio in one to three days’ time.


★ PRIVATE EVENTS AND CHILDREN'S PARTIES


Host a unique Birthday party to remember with a fun Fluid Art Class. All children will create an individual art work they are proud of. The group can even work together on an extra one for the birthday guest.


You can bring your own refreshments and decorations, or discuss options for a fully catered event. We supply all the art materials and equipment for an easy to arrange and manage special day.


Children’s events are normally 2 hours or as negotiated.


Contact us now to plan your fun event.
