Follow Sossy into her dedicated Studio + Gallery located in the heart of vibey Elsternwick. The Gallery is well-suited for children's art workshops, with a dedicated studio space set up with easels and workshop tables. The space is spacious and soothing, allowing your child to get carried away in a world of colour and beauty.

Session size ranges from 4 to 12 attendees. In the event of a larger group than 12, an assistant artist will work with Sossy to ensure each child gets plenty of hands-on guidance.

We will explore a range of media with the children, including charcoal, pencils, paints, and clays. This will introduce them to the basics of artistry and offer them the opportunity to develop a love for their favourite art type! The classes teach confidence and patience while nurturing creativity and fine motor skills.

Sossy + Canvas is an art studio and events gallery based in Melbourne, Australia. Featuring the work of abstract artist, Sossy Kinderman, the studio is home to a collection of impressive oil paintings and in person art workshops. Art lovers, students and collectors are invited to indulge their creative side through a fully immersive art experience at Sossy + Canvas.

Resident artist Sossy is an experienced painter with a bold and striking style developed after years of painting. Creating beautiful and deeply moving pieces that speak to her history and place in the world, Sossy’s work aims to connect with the viewer through their own lived experience and interpretation of her work. While heavily influenced by abstract art and its ability to inspire curiosity and emotion through colour, form, texture and scale, Sossy still regularly applies representational reference points when painting her widely-loved Judaica art. Having picked up her first paintbrush at the age of four, Sossy has always understood the importance of art as a means of self expression both for the artist and those who enjoy it.

Sossy’s Judaica themed work began as realism and portraiture while living in Melbourne as she explored the city’s rich art culture. After moving to Israel to live for four years, Sossy regularly visited the Old City of Jerusalem where she mingled with Israeli artists who inspired and influenced her work as a Judaica artist. Weaving her way through European art galleries, Sossy had a deeply transformative experience while viewing Gustav Klimt’s work in Vienna. Having spent years perfecting a classical style that was underpinned with technical skill, Sossy was moved to transition her style to abstract work with symbolist and impressionist influences, paving the way for her distinctive abstract Judaic style she maintains today.
As an art teacher and creative, Sossy splits her time designing novel artworks and custom commissioned art, while hosting oil painting workshops to help others develop their artistic skills. Sossy finds great meaning in her creative work, particularly through custom commissioned artwork, as she captures and expresses the story, memories, and symbols of her clients’ lives.
