This is a specialised course for students aged 9 to 12 that focuses on the development of foundational techniques for painting and drawing, combined with a mentoring style support for children producing their own artwork.
Participants can work in the drawing or painting media of their choice. Founder and Director of Melbourne Art Class, Marco Corsini, will also work with parents and guardians to find the right balance of technical/creative for their child.
Marco will be video conferencing live from the MAC studio into students’ own studios.. This course will not be a series of recorded videos, rather it is an online version of our usual Children’s Art Classes.
The program, Zoom, that we will be using allows students to interact with each other as well as with Marco to collaboratively explore art techniques. Marco is also able to engage in one-on-one coaching with students during the class just like in the studio.
Marco will provide weekly tutorials, feedback and support group discussion in relation to the Studio Art groups work. Each class will roughly follow the following format:
- Group tutorial or demonstration of an art technique relevant to the group.
- Marco will spend approx. 5 min x 2, with each participant while other participants work.
- Group discussion and feedback on individual’s work guided by Marco.
The course takes Melbourne Art Class’s focus on fundamental skills and creates a program suitable for the age group. Enrolments for this class will be limited to 10 students.

Student feedback from Marco’s Children’s Art Class
“It is a great course and it gives me the freedom to draw whatever I want with proper materials and equipment. I am happy with the length, it gives me enough time to finish or start a project. I think that the studio has the right materials and I never have seen the students asking Marco if he has something and he has said no. Monday has become my favourite day of the week.” – Amelia, 2019
“Coco loves this class with Marco. He is a patient and skillful arts teacher. We are very glad that we found this art class.”- Pearl, 2018
“We recommend the course very much. Marco is a very good teacher. He inspires the students and teaches fundamental skills, also a very good communicator with kids and parents. We are very happy about the course.” – Yuki, Dec 2016
