Our aim for these classes is to foster creative thinking and build self-confidence, and allow children a safe space to learn, experiment and create. Your child will learn all aspects of fine art including theory, history and techniques while having lots of fun finding their own unique style.

LANDSCAPE TERM:
The first Term of 2015 will focus on landscapes. We will look at the impressionists, the romantics and contemporary artists, realistic and abstract landscapes.T he art space has a beautiful back garden and we will make full use of it. We will learn to see the beauty that is in the natural world around us. They will learn the techniques and the theory and then they will come up with their own unique  creation at the end of the term, my using the tools and concepts they have learned, but interpreting that in a way that is unique and personal to them.

THIS YEAR WE WILL WORK TOWARDS ENTERING SHOWS AND HOSTING A SPECIAL END OF YEAR EXHIBITION AT THE ART SPACE.

As always, we hope this email finds you wonderful, well, and enjoying the possibility the New Year will bring. 

We have so many exciting things happening at the ARTspace this year – INCLUDING turning 5!!! The ARTspace was such a huge leap of faith, I’ve told you before that I was manifesting the old adage, “Leap and the net shall appear..” and by goodness we let alright! It’s been an incredible journey, and seen many of us through some of the darkest and brightest days. It’s as much of an honour now as it was then. The space, had really gone from strength to strength, and the friendships and memories are a’plenty! 

Do you think it’s cause for a party? I’m thinking so…more soon xxx

  • Loobylou – Finders Keepers Fri 6th – Saturday 7th June
We are beyond thrilled that Loobylou candles have been invited back to Finders Keepers in June. It’s truly an honour to showcase something we’ve worked so very hard on and believe in so much, in such an exciting and dynamic forum. We’re surrounded by such talent and workmanship with Finders Keepers and can’t wait! I plan to get ahead of Christmas shopping (for a change) this year, and what a one stop shop that will be!
Also, we have a new retailer. Lakota Trading at 12 Lenthall Street, Kensignton. Lakota carries our entire 250ml range of candles amongst vintage wares, industrial antiques and the kicker – GREAT coffee.
  • Kid’s Art Classes / Lessons
I’m putting together a few classes for the next school holidays between myself and hopefully a couple of other locals creatives. If you’re interested let me know ASAP for first dibs on spaces. We run small classes so that your little folks can get as much out of them, and have heaps of time for exploration and experimentation as they can get.
Further to this, one of our wonderful ARTspace crew, Dawn is putting together a course for regular Art classes starting soon for after school. As above, let us know if you’re interested so you can get the information first.
We try to cater to the needs of the community as best we can and the whole aim of the ARTspace is to be an accessible, affordable safe creative space. If YOU have any ideas of courses/classes/Exhibitions you think we should be running, please let us know! Feedback is how we’ll grow.
Colourful days to you.

2014 ART classes for Adults and Teens FINALLY!!!

Hey Gang,


Following a heap of emails through the year about this very subject, I am super excited to be sending this email announcing the beginning of ‘a new era’  at the underground ARTspace – the return to classes. This email announces the beginning of some pretty exciting Art classes being run by Lisa Woolfe and Rachel Carrol (two well known and incredibly talented Artists) located in the underground ARTspace! Rachel will be doing Abstract & Mixed Media Painting (adults) and also Art Classes for Teens 12-17 years. While Lisa will be teaching Learn to Draw (adults). On top of this, plans are already underway for a Life Drawing Studio. Please find attached a flyer about the classes, or check out their website: http://artclassesnorthernbeaches.com.au
 
It’s been a big mission of mine to have the ARTspace as a stand alone creative space for Artists – and creatives of ANY medium to come down, and find their inner Artist is safe and fabulous surrounds. Art classes – and creating were the very core of my intention for the space but due to me being still a little unstable, and attempting to find balance – it’s something I’ve never been able to fully commit to. And a commitment it is. Art teachers (and all teachers) share something so personal and passionate and in doing so, help you to connect to your own gifts be they entire dormant thus far, or just a little dusty. That being said, the ARTspace is so special to me, and all the Studio Artists that reside within it, I wasn’t going to just hand it over to anyone was I?
 
So….ta dah. A new chapter begins. I am so excited to be sending you this email introducing this. I hope a lot of folks on my list have the opportunity to secure a space within Rachel and Lisa’s classes. This is just one avenue this will be promoted via so GET IN QUICK!!! I hope to see you around my neck of the woods again soon.

SO WHAT IS THE ARTSPACE?

Simply, a space for the ARTS. A destination/location/platform set up by Kere M Baker of Red Olive Studios (retail and design). In an effort to provide affordable Studio and Exhibition space, somewhere for local creatives to, well, create…the underground ARTspace was founded.

Initially ARTspace flew under the Red Olive Studios banner, however the ARTspace itself has been the core of it all,the constant, a continuing.

Our goals and plans for the New Year are to continue to educate, create and become more of a collective. We are looking at hosting kids and Adults Creative classes, both with our own Artists network, and with others coming in to host their own – so there’ll be lots of opportunities and perspectives.

WHAT OF THE ARTSPACE…

t’s a great little ‘underground’ spot at 294 Sydney Road, Balgowlah which we’ve turned into Studio and Gallery space for local Artists. It’s been a LONG process – lots of learning along the way, but I’m really stoked about all of it – including the Artists and creative folk you’re surrounded by on your own creative journey.

It’s an Underground space, which is quite special – there’s a kind of exclusive, boutique feel about it. It’s raw and industrial, and pretty unique really. There’s also an incredible backyard which has seen many days with easels and paint on sunny days, bubbles and tealight candles on opening nights…Something for everyone! We’ve had the studios running since Easter 2010, and the Gallery part of the space officially opened with astounding success on August 5th 2010 with the group show ‘Editors Pic(k)s’.

It’s a really wonderful space, with kitchen and full bathroom facilities, an incredible leafy and inspiring backyard and in the company of some beautiful and talented like minded people.

Even if you’re not looking for a Studio or Exhibition space, you might be wanting to run workshops or seminars or host lectures or functions or hold Art classes, – all of which we’re really open to having a chat about. I’m personally wanting someone to do some hebel sculpting lessons – that’s something I’ve wanted to do for a long time…Watch this space!
