Our passion is teaching people how to find, use and enjoy their creativity. You are never too old, or too young to learn.
About Our Classes
Do you want your kids to have fun, learn how to problem-solve, and increase their social skills while learning to draw, paint and make things?
The Painting Cave offer Kids Art Term Classes after-school art and craft activities for children from Grade 1 to age 15 years, at our studio in Centurion, Pretoria. Our emphasis is on having fun, learning some art skills and trying new things.
We encourage kids to develop their creativity, trying out everything from painting, mask-making, drawing, decoupage, and sewing, to sculpture, clay work, papier mâché, printmaking and more.
Our program changes every term, and classes are designed to enhance children’s natural abilities to see elements such as line, shape, colour and composition.
- All materials provided, plus an art apron for each child to use
- One-hour sessions, Tuesday to Thursday
- The weeks are set to the school terms, so they are determined by what school your child attends. Download or view our 1 term calendar here
- Only 10 children per class
- We also offer Kids Holiday Workshops for kids from 6 to 15yrs
- Kids-Only Art Parties for ages 6 and up.
What We Offer
KidsArt Term Classes
Term classes offer the children projects to complete over the term. They will set up a drawing journal to record their ideas; learn to plan, prepare and complete a project from start to finish. They learn to draw using pencil, oil pastel, markers, pastels, and watercolour paint. Study paintings by professional artists and try out their techniques on canvas. Investigate colour, texture, and composition through different creative painting and drawing projects. Be inspired to develop their own ideas and create. They will get to exhibit their finished projects and then take them home. Suitable for ages 6-15yrs

Kids Holiday Workshops
2 x Two-hour Kids Workshops are offered to children during the school holidays. They will make and complete a craftwork to be proud of and take home at the end of the class. All materials are included in the cost. These Workshops are available to all children who are part of the Term classes or not. Please see our term calendar for dates.

Terms & Conditions
Choosing your day!
Most schools have pre-scheduled extra-mural activities. Please ensure that the class that you book for your child does not conflict with another extra-mural activity. Term classes require attendance to complete projects. Classes may not be changed during the term unless there is a seat available. You may change your DAY once a term.
Obviously there could possibly be a day when your child cannot attend a class due to illness or other unforeseen circumstances. We will do our best to try and accommodate your child in another class, or to assist them to not fall behind. Please notify us should your child not be attending
Children attending any classes at The Painting Cave are to wear shoes or even slops. Bare feet in a working studio can be dangerous. We have Workshops where we work with mosaic tiles and wire which can land up on the floor and be found by little feet. Please avoid this by ensuring that your children have shoes on their feet when they come to class.
Hair needs to be tied back. No school clothes unless the child wears an over-sized shirt over their school clothes.
The Painting Cave will not be responsible for damaged clothes. We will offer aprons although it is still recommended that the children wear old clothes.
Fees are payable in advance. No child will be admitted to class with outstanding fees.
Price Per Child Per Term
