We receive many direct debit payments and without a reference and receipt, it can be very difficult to locate your payment.

So you need to select ABN or ACN option and then type in the following 11 digit number only: 24660623745 Reference: Your child's name, date and time.

  • Trial Classes
    You are welcome to enrol for a paid 2 consecutive week class trial period. Why two classes? The first class may be filled with nerves and not knowing anyone or the teacher, so best to give it two classes so you can settle into the space, meet the people and get a better feeling for our class structure.

How do I do this? - Complete the enrolment form for the class day and group you wish to join - In the Additional Information section provide dates of trial - In the Payment section select the Trial price option - Upon payment select “Pay in Person” Payments for trial classes are by Direct Debit or cash on arrival only Direct Debit to: Name: Little Art Big Art Pty Ltd BSB: 063 571 Account: 1044 0703 Reference: TRIAL Your child's name, date and time.

All casual classes must be pre-booked and payment made prior to the beginning of class. If you are unsure if a class is casual or not, please get in touch via email and we can help you out.
  • Tips For Settling In
    Regular routines and faces are key factors in establishing trust with our little ones. Each child adapts differently to a new environment. From my knowledge as a teacher, a parent myself, and feedback from parents, it generally takes 3-4 weeks for a toodler and our younger primary aged children to settle in. It is best not to force your younger child to participate. Discuss what will happen, meet and greet the teacher/s and let them know the situation. For our under 5's, sit behind them or with them and be part of the creating process. For our older students in our drop off programs, please get in touch via email as we Child Health and Safety Guidelines we must adhere to.
  • Family Discount
    If you have two or more budding artists, please get in touch for the family discount. Some programs may be excluded from discounts.
  • Parent Attendance
    Each program will outline if a parental attendance is required. Most school aged programs are drop off. All artists attending the TINY ARTISTS Programs must be accompanied by a parent/carer. ​
  • Waiting Lists
    Please join our Subscribers email to find out the latest.
  • What is Processed Art?
    Processed Art is about the actual making and creating journey that takes place. It is not focused on the end product. Through learning about the process, students become skilled fine artists. Take a closer look at OUR VISION and why we stand by it.
  • Do I have to stay? Can I stay?
    PRIMARY SCHOOL - HIGH SCHOOL - KINDER ART WORKSHOPS All classes are strictly drop-off only due to child safety laws, unless it is stated that ADULTS WELCOME TO JOIN. This means adults are welcome to participate in the workshop too with their child/ren. Adults are charged at student prices. Again, adults can only stay where it is stipulated on the Timetable and all adults need to pay too. If you need to stay for some reason for a workshop that does not state ADULTS WELCOME TO JOIN, you must get in contact with Rachael to discuss as there are child safety laws we must follow. UNDER 5 YEARS (TINY ARTISTS) A parent or guardian MUST accompany any child/ren booked in for our Tiny Artist program. Your child may like to create independently or with you so your active involvement may be required. Enjoy creating side by side!!
