Reflections Art Studio – classes and programs
Our staff includes professional artists and art therapists who will help you develop your own arts practice through art classes and supported open studios. Term programs change 4 times a year.
Each term structured art classes are provided in a variety of art techniques and mediums. These will suit those who want to learn something new, brush up on some skills or who work better in a structured environment.
Open studios sessions encourage you to pursue your own personally directed art practice. During this time you can prepare for an art exhibition, develop your ideas or just use the time to relax while making art.
You can make an appointment to see one of our art therapists if you need extra support or have any issues about your attendance at Reflections.
