Established in 1995, studioMAP is a professional and fully fitted out art-studio located within M16 Artspace (community Art Centre) in Griffith ACT Australia.
studioMAP provides painting, drawing and illustration classes & workshops during ACT school terms.
Students from 6 – 18 yrs attend studioMAP after-school or on Saturdays for weekly term based classes
Central to it’s ethos and integrated into all classes is its curriculum known as Art-with-a-Map. This unique program of art education, systematically unfolds the painting and drawing process across all classes.
Central to Art-with a Map are a series of art maps, that define the curriculum’s elements and provide the instructional framework to initiate, develop and grow all student’s abilities – not only at a pace that is compatible to their learning stages but also provides a thorough and long lasting platform to endlessly serve their own art journey.
All classes use drawing mediums, acrylic and water based paints, pencils, markers, digital drawing pads and large range of equipment and supporting media. These are supplied and included in the fees for use by all students in the studio. Students may simply turn up at studioMAP and commence working and enjoy their artmaking _ and its Fun!
Three main age groups guide students to their own particular abilities: Children (6-10yrs) Children (9-14yrs) and Teen only (14yrs+)
Illustration classes are focused on contemporary / modern illustration styles that explore current digital and screen illustration styles like Pokemon Manga and other online derived content. We have digital drawing pads as well as expert tutors in the digital fields.
