Melbourne Art Class Corporate and Group Events

With a considerable track record of running high quality workshops taught by our experienced artists and teachers, Melbourne Art Class is the ideal partner for your corporate offsite, team building or wellbeing event. Melbourne Art Class also specialises to school group events with specialist bespoke educational workshops.

Having run workshops with some of Australia’s most recognisable corporate brands, we are looking forward to running a workshop for your team, either at your work place, an offsite space or at our own Armadale, Melbourne studio. The studio is set in a beautiful and creative 1903 building which can accommodate workshops of up to about 80 people.

We have put together the below list of our most popular workshops. These workshops are typically run for 1 to 2 hours, with our quoted pricing below for a 2 hour workshop in our Armadale studio.

Suggested workshops

Introduction to Watercolour and Gouache Illustration 

Participants will complete a watercolour and gouache painting. They will be introduced to basic gouache and watercolour painting techniques. Basic materials and equipment will be discussed.

Creative Mindfulness for wellbeing and slowing down 

Creative Mindfulness Art Therapy workshop participants will get to take a break from the daily rush to reflect and wind down. Through gently exploring different creative mindfulness exercises and trying different art materials we playfully engage with how we are feeling and what might help us to take care of ourselves in our day to day lives. We use creative processes and art making to focus on the here and now and to get out of the thinking brain and into a more tactile making experience.

Japanese Ink Painting (Sumi-e)

Sumi-e is the ancient art of Japanese brush painting. Traditionally, paintings feature subjects from nature, such as flowers and birds. This is a workshop steeped in ritual and meaning.

Drawing Bootcamp

Be introduced to some of the most powerful drawing techniques you will ever use. With a focus on the perception of a three-dimensional world this intensive is designed to re-train your brain to see. Participants will explore fundamental techniques and tools and refine drawing skills.

Life Drawing or Costumed Life Drawing

Life drawing is a profound artistic practice that celebrates the beauty and intricacies of the human form. Costumed Life Drawing is a practical way to introduce Life Drawing to your team and we will bring a costumed circus performer to pose as our model.

Personal Development workshops in Self Care and Mindfulness

Can be tailored to the needs of your team, this workshop is facilitated by an experienced Art Therapist and trainer.

“…the team really enjoyed their time with Jaana last week. I got a lot of comments about how relaxing it was, perfect end to our first day together.”

-Amity, Head of Brand for The Salvation Army


“It was brilliant! Honestly one of the best life drawing classes I’ve done. Hilmi was lovely and had a great teaching style. And as you said, Maria was gorgeous to draw. We have all been talking this morning about how great it was and everyone has come down to see our masterpieces.”

-Emily, Art Director for RAPP Marketing Agency (DDB Worldwide Marketing Communications Group)

“It was a very worthwhile workshop and good for us to be using different parts of our brain – as well as to share what each was doing and achieving. The team enjoyed the time very much – you are a great and patient teacher!”

– Elisabeth, Leadership Team, K- 12 school.

The Creating Calm Workshop provided at Aurecon Melbourne was a great success and very well received. Jaana was a wonderful teacher and facilitator, who helped the group relax, let go of the day’s demands and enjoy the mindful art process without worrying about whether we were going to be the next Picasso. Jaana also brought with her a range of materials including stencils, stickers and magazines which gave participants somewhere to ‘start’ their artwork, relieving some of the pressure that comes with creativity and allowing us to focus on the process. This idea of not having to start from scratch, and using art as a way to practice mindfulness without thinking about the end-result, is something that all the participants took away from the workshop. It was very appreciated how waste-conscious Jaana was, as she packed up all the little bits and pieces for reuse in other workshops.

– Sarah, Aurecon.
