What we're about

This group, formally known as "Art Workshops and Classes" is for anyone who has always wanted to take art lessons and finally decided to do so. After working in schools for the past 30 years, and with my new Diploma of Art Therapy, I have developed a unique teaching system that is more than just learning skills. I know the health benefits of living a creative life. I connect people with their creative side so they can use art-making to learn, grow, heal, make friends and find enjoyment.

While everyone is welcome, I started Studio yellow to reach out to adults who feel they really need to start 'ART' from the very beginning. My classes combine everything I know about art materials and techniques with everything I have learnt about fostering creativity from the 100s of students I have taught during my career. As a fully qualified, registered Art teacher, I make every class relaxed and informative so you will learn how to enjoy the creative process in a completely non-judgemental atmosphere. With lots of personal attention, absolute beginners feel particularly supported.

You will meet people who have always had art in their heart, but have had little or no opportunity to learn how to do it. I also run sessions for those with some Art experience who are looking to reignite their confidence or work in a collaborative art space. Our members also meet up socially at Galleries and Exhibition openings and anywhere else that takes our fancy.

My classes are held in Manly West on Brisbane's beautiful bayside on weekdays and Saturdays. I also teach mobile classes, such as my 'Pineapple Pops Program' (after-school Art classes for children) at local schools. All classes and workshops are listed on my website https://www.studioyellow.com.au/ and posted here as well. I want to change lives so if you have a particular interest or idea, let me know, as I just might be able to accommodate your needs. I look forward to meeting you soon, Natalie

Each fortnight you have the opportunity to work side by side with other creatives while doing your own project independently. Splat 'n' Chat sessions are designed for anyone who is wanting a little advice or motivation. We support and encourage each other! Whatever level you’re at, Artists often find it difficult to escape their chores and make time for their passion. You will be amazed at how I can help you to increase your productivity and expand your ideas.
