After School and Adult Art Classes — The Suter Art Gallery

The Suter offers a comprehensive education service catering to the needs of preschool, primary, and secondary students, as well as tertiary students and adults. Our Education Room looks out over the Queen’s Gardens and the outdoors Sculpture Walk, which also provides a tranquil backdrop and additional subject matter.
We are now taking enrolments for a range of Art Classes for Term 1, 2022.

Suter Kids Club
The Suter Kids’ Club runs weekly after school art classes for 6-13 year olds. Children have fun learning about art using our exhibitions as a springboard, under the guidance of well-qualified and experienced teachers. They are encouraged to have fun with art materials and are guided to explore art techniques and self-expression working with a broad range of art media on a variety of projects.

My ArtSpace
My Art Space is a weekly creative hub for teens to connect and work on their art projects. The class runs every Thursday between 3:45 – 5pm facilitated by a fully qualified tutor and practicing artist. My Art Space gives teens the opportunity to extend their skills, learn new techniques, and consider where to look for inspiration. Students can, on occasion, also get to meet the artists and curators involved in the Suter’s exhibition programme to gain ‘behind-the-scenes’ insight into how artworks are created and exhibitions prepared.

Art For Adults
Led by Mark Dunstan, ‘Art for Adults’ caters to beginners to those who might be more experienced but perhaps want encouragement, to try something new, such as new techniques, working in different media or trying to tackle the different subject matter. With a regularly changing exhibitions’ programme and a collection to draw on, there is never any shortage of inspiration at hand in the gallery.
