Welcome to makeART
“every child is born an artist”
Over the past 8 years this statement has become the drive behind makeART Classes and Workshops. We aim to help each child, tween, and teen remain the artist they were originally born as, and inspire adults to rediscover the orphaned artist buried within.
At makeART we are constantly working with the community to develop new classes and workshops. We cater for a variety of ages and also offer school holiday workshops.
Children & Youth After School Classes
8 week term (8 hours)
Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday
$196 per term

We believe your child was born an artist and my aim is to replace the iPad with a canvas, a mouse with a paintbrush and the phone with a palette. For an hour each week your young artist will go on a journey of exploration and self discovery through adventures in drawing, painting, collage and 3D art. You get to simply drop off, pick up and start your own gallery.
Art is a deeply personal experience and our role is to introduce your young artist to a variety of art making materials, inspire and teach the practice of mindfully focusing on the process of their creation. Not only on what they are creating but how they are creating it… the feel of different materials, a pencil mark, pastel, the feathery touch of a paint brush, the magnificence of a splash of watercolour.
All classes begin the week after school starts each term and end the week before school finishes.
Sip & Paint!
$50 per person
7.00 - 9.00pm
Make new friends by booking one of our Sip & Paint events at our studio or share laughter with old friends at your own venue where we come to you. Either way, Rachael, our very own artist will provide step-by-step guidance and banter to help you unleash your creativity using acrylic paints on canvas with occasional use of mixed media as collage.
Absolutely no experience is needed. Sip & Paint is perfect for newbies. If you can hold a pencil… you’re covered! All materials are provided, and you don’t have to clean up as we do that for you too. At the end of the evening, you’ll have your own fabulous piece of 16” x 20” artwork to hang on your wall.

Who are we?
makeART Classes and Workshops was established in July 2014 making our home in the upstairs art space at the Mary Davies Library and Community Centre in Baldivis. Since then, makeART's passion to provide a space for young artists to expand their creativity and encourage grown-ups to find the playful artist subdued within has expanded into a fun, creative family with classes and workshops to suit every age group.
We invite you to scroll through our palette of opportunities, make your booking and lets create amazing art together.
