Always available and always free, enjoy our Home Art Project in your own time and from the comfort of home. Just for fun, or to be taken more seriously if you like, we hope this content inspires you to create.
Born from a desire to help motivate beginner and experienced artists alike to keep creating during lockdowns, we bring you our new initiative to help inspire and educate. A great starting point to get the ball rolling at home, to keep the kids entertained during school holidays, or to get the creative juices flowing if you are experiencing a block, come back anytime and work your way through the different projects. Just for fun, or to be taken more seriously if you like, we hope this content inspires you to create.
We encourage you to share your work on facebook or instagram and tag Melbourne Art Class and / or use the hashtag #MACartproject so that we, and others in the art community, can enjoy and support your work. (Not social network inclined? Email your work to us at email@example.com)
Each project contains a children’s version for younger students.

Our Studio Art Courses are the foundation of Melbourne Art Class. In these classes you have the freedom to work on your own projects, or our Still Life display with guidance from an experienced teacher and professional artist. During the term, we sometimes have mini-lectures on a particular art movement, genre or technique. We welcome all skills levels, from complete beginners, to experienced artists who need a space and dedicated time to create.
The program is a studio-based class that mixes personalised tuition with a program of short presentations. A wide range of mediums are available, including drawing and painting in both oils and acrylics. It would be suitable for anyone who is interested in a class that develops observational skills and fundamental artistic skills while maintaining a degree of flexibility for creativity.
