In case you haven't heard, we opened a brand new art studio here on The Esplanade; South Coast Studio.
We offer a variety of workshops including basic drawing, life drawing, perspective drawing, watercolours and sketch a pet.
We are baby friendly so parents can learn while hanging with the bubba during the day.
Parent and teen sessions offer great opportunity to explore a shared interest and spend time together.
Likewise, we welcome and encourage our senior neighbours to come and pursue their creative interests in an environment that is fun and supportive.
Would you like to organize a fun outing for your group? Private lessons or specific group requests are always catered for. Why not have an art event for a treat?

Here's a cool idea for communicating with your neighbours without technology or breaching alert level rules...
Each household gets 3 pieces of coloured paper that can be displayed in a window or on a door that others can easily see.
- Green is for I'm OK
- Yellow is for needing help or a check-in
- Red is for an emergency
This is a safe and simple way let others know how you're doing while also looking out for others in your community.
