Your child's genius is their masterpiece



From 18 months old: Just like our Private Adult Workshops, we offer exciting art experiences for chidren. We work with children as young as 18 months as this is when they can best start to follow instructions and be engrossed for hours in our specially developed children's creative process. Professional paints on gallery quality canvas and templates of your artwork design allow your child to manage stunning results that will last a lifetime.

School aged children: Older children who are serious about art can express themselves one on one with art stylist Sharron Tancred in a way that's not achievable at art classes e.g. throwing paint like Jackson Pollock.

For parents, displaying their child's gallery quality artwork in their home or office can release great feelings of pride, though nothing surpasses the child's own pride.

About process, bookings & guarantee








'Aim High! Be True!'

Client Brief - Matthew and Lytia had their heart set on their 5-year-old son Max experiencing a Private Kids Workshop after their older daughter had painted "Butterfly Dreaming"... and the day had arrived! The goal: an artwork that Max could use as his mantra, "Aim High! Be True" - his hero Astro Boy's slogan - and an heirloom image that would still look cool when Max had his own home.

Our strategy - As little kids lack small motor dexterity, it's a far richer experience for them to do their thing while Sharron teaches them about the physical side of painting: how body angle, arm angle and brush management affect the painting. Figurative artworks like these require templates to cover or be removed as the work progesses, thus creating an easier, more relaxed experience and guaranteeing a far better result than traditional art classes for children.

The outcome -  "Max had a wonderful time painting his Astro Boy, it's the most focused I've ever seen him! He loved working with Sharron who made him feel relaxed and at home. She even thought of the little touches like Max's favourite food which made his day. He learnt so much about the different ways in which you can use a paintbrush and the various techniques he could use (even thought he was the expert!)  When I asked Max what he loved the best about Sharron, he said "She is very creative just like me!" I would highly recommend booking a children's workshop with Sharron as the quality of the artwork that they produced together was outstanding and it is something that can be kept forever."  Lytia, school teacher




'Life's A Circus!'

The brief: Police officers Tammy and Ian live a busy life with their 3 gregarious girls, Grace 12 and twins Lauren and Victoria 10. The family buys, renovates and sells homes, so with their busy lives and the girls’ auditory processing syndromes, ‘Life’s a Circus!’. Tammy wanted an artwork which reflected their life – something colourful that would work in any neutral environment.

The strategy: The words on Sharron’s mind mapping list - ballet, music, spectral colours, Kandinsky, Banjo (White Welsh Mountain Pony), Atticus (poodle), Prince Charming (Lauren’s almost-strangled, over-cuddled cat), Victoria’s handstands, Grace’s tutu – formed the picture in Sharron’s mind designed to suit the square format of the landing wall. 

The results: A massive day! 3 little girls who truly enjoyed themselves, gave their all to their masterpiece. Well done Grace, Lauren and Victoria!





Client brief – 8 year old Phoebe lives a magical life secluded within the clouds and trees of the Glass House Mountains. Being home schooled, her family look for enriching relevant experiences – like a Private Children’s Workshop with Sharron Tancred!  The brief was to inspire vibrant colours into the space and tell a story about home to last the generations. 

Our strategy – Sharron's aerial scene's composed of layers of birdlife, clouds and Phoebe’s hillside playground for tobogganing, watering, singing and dancing.  Phoebe's the hero, like Liberace dashing out a tune on her piano.  Childhood's an orchestration of colours, smells, sounds and memories; a symphony played once, but captured here forever.

The outcome – “Dear Sharron, We just wanted to say a big thank you for such a fantastic day.  Phoebe had a wonderful time and learnt so much! I also had a very relaxing and enjoyable day by your pool!  Thank you for making Phoebe and I feel so welcome in your studio and al the delicious food!”
