Frequently asked question:

Q ~ Do I need any painting experience to create a Reborn Baby?
No not at all, most people that come to class have no prior knowledge of painting, but no need to worry you are assisted all the way through and I promise you will take home a baby you will be proud of!  
I have been teaching art for almost 20yrs so you will be assisted and encouraged all the way!
Q ~ How many lessons will I need?
Multiple lessons are required for completion of one baby,
This amount will depend on how easily you pick it up, and as everyone works at their own pace, allow anywhere 6-8 lessons or more?.. A lovely baby takes patience and time  by not rushing you will create a much nicer baby that you will be proud of and you will simply adore!
Q ~ If class has already started will I need to catch up?
Not at all, new students can start anytime, because this is an ongoing class & not a workshop people are all at working at different paces and are often at different stages with their babies.
Q ~ Where are the Classes held?
Classes are held within my Home Studio, East Maitland NSW
{My air~conditioned studio easily accommodates 8-10 students comfortably 
 With adequate off street parking,
at a convenient location close to public transport if needed}

Art Class- What We Do information...

As the saying goes... Your Never too young or too old to do Art!
It's a lot of fun for everyone
During class all students have the opportunity to either learn or build on their painting & drawing skills using a large variety of mediums including acrylic, charcoal, pen, ink, water color & colored pencil & more...there is no set task in class students are encouraged to work on any composition they choose. If they don't have one a subject selection will be offered to them.

Classes are: $25.00 per student per class, class is per fortnight, All materials are supplied in class with the exception of canvas or full  sheets of W/c paper. These are available to purchase from me for an additional fee. A picture framing service is also available at affordable prices.

Students especially those whom have an interest in the Arts forge ahead eager to learn new mediums, techniques and styles always arriving to class filled with  a combination of joy, vigor & enthusiasm. This is a wonderful way for the Artistically minded folk to get together to pursue their creative endeavors... there's a lot of fun, creativity and chatting...during class students are encouraged to learn tonal & com positional skills as well as discovering light and shade to enhance their work. At a level that is within each students artistic range.

In the past all students who attended classes had the opportunity to have their work displayed or for sale on this website (privacy assured) as well as being able to enter Local Art Shows or Exhibitions as they become available throughout the year. Where students had the opportunity to either sell their work or be eligible for an Art Prize within their chosen section entered.. This not only built great confidence and focus as an Artist (budding or otherwise) but also rewards  students with possibility of a sale. For those who chose to enter shows or group exhibitions learnt what it takes to fill out art show entry forms, complete work within the Show or Gallery guidelines, while meeting time schedules for exhibitions, this is valuable footing for any upcoming artist who is wanting to express their art either as a hobbyist or go on to be a professional.

*I have had many students go on to win Awards, sell their work regularly and be offered opportunities that will help establish their footing within the Arts community.

If you are thinking of attending art class, please contact me for availability of space.  Classes do vary in size, and this can change quickly so bookings are essential; Classes are available on a fortnightly basis Please phone or email me with any inquiries or questions regarding classes. thanks

If you have any further questions that may not have been covered on this page feel free to contact me for a chat!

Thank you.

Cathy Brady Artist Hi Phillippa, Lovely to hear that Baby Ryan is bringing joy to the aged residents & the possibility of having you join us again in class to make a bubby girl would be delightful .. Big hugs Cathy.

I had a wonderful time attending classes to create my first reborn baby, Ryan. Thanks Cathy. We take him to Aged Care Facilities and get very positive reactions from baby-loving residents. I hope to return to classes soon to make a baby girl.
