Home Art Projects

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.

Description


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 hub@melbourneartclass.com)

Each project contains a children’s version for younger students.
