A Place for Little Artists
Is your child a budding Picasso or Van Gogh? Local resident Geeta Bhargava has created The Little Wooden Hut, a place where little artists can come together and express themselves with art classes.
Located at Ropes Crossing, The Little Wooden Hut caters for school aged children from 5 years and above.
Throughout the school term, students are taught the basics of art like the colour wheel and colouring techniques with different mediums. During the school holidays, the workshops are more intense, and they run for 2 to 3 hours, where they explore art forms like collage, glass painting and acrylic on canvas.
“The idea for The Little Wooden Hut began in 2015, as a hobby. I was painting artwork for family and friends, whilst working as an Architectural Designer. I realised that my passion lied in painting and creative work and it was a job I could see myself doing forever! I soon took the plunge and gave up my full-time job to focus on The Little Wooden Hut. When doing customised artworks, one of my friends suggested that I could teach her daughter art. My art class journey started last year, and it continues to grow” explained Geeta.
With different classes available, Geeta takes a maximum of 8 students per class. The classes take place Wednesdays and Thursdays from 5:30pm to 6:30pm and Saturdays from 9:00am to 10:00am and 10:00am to 11:00am. They are a registered provider for the NSW Governments Creative Kids Scheme, where parents of school aged children can redeem their Creative Kids voucher.
“As a child, I loved to paint and draw since the age of 5. I believe in continual learning and love to explore different art forms around the world. Art is a powerful medium to convey messages or emotions and is one of the forms we can pass on to our younger generations as a method of learning about history, heritage and creating a future” ended Geeta.
