How does the day work? For example, after taking part in the clay sculpture during the 1st 9 week session, you would continue with the themes introduced there and work with them further on your own with Patricks support and guidance during the two studioclasses that follow on that day. The same process would be followed in the 2nd session when you are working with Martina in painting and drawing. In the third session youd work independently on 2d, 3d or eurythmy projects of your own choice, culminating in a final presentation/exhibition.

Tuition for the full Arts Year of 3 sessions is $2,925. Fee for 1 or 2 nine week, full day Sessions – $1,000.00 per session. Fee per single class – $180.00 per session.                                                                                                                                               

Standard materials fees are included, but costs related to your personal projects will be your responsibility.

Were looking forward to engaging in this new track!
