Are you searching for the best things to do in Perth for teenagers? Look no further than Shannan Whitby's art workshops for teens! These workshops explore a different medium each week.

With a new creative project each workshop, which are designed to allow creativity to flow in a relaxed atmosphere, teens can learn a range of skills and make many DIY creations.

Some of the mediums explored include ink, clay hand building, mandalas and acrylic paint pouring. No two classes are the same, so teens are welcome to come back as many times as they wish. Plus, no prior artistic experience is needed!

These workshops are specifically designed as smaller classes for teens who require carers or support workers. Due to the class and studio size, support workers will be required to pay because of the maximum occupancy of the studio with class size and Covid restrictions. Support workers are at a reduced cost as no materials will be supplied for these tickets.

Equine & pet portrait, seascape, abstract & Resin Artist.

After excelling in Art at Mercedes College, I was accepted to Edith Cowan University studying Visual Arts. And later Business & Professional Accounting at Curtin University. After a 20-year career working and Studying in Book Keeping & Accounting until 2016, I began painting again and realised where my passion was.

I met Jana Vodesil-Baruffi in 2017 and began taking her classes. The opportunity arose in December 2018 to open a Children's Art Studio Beneath the Adults Studio and we have been working together to create and develop a Fun and Comprehensive Curriculum to teach a wide range of skills and mediums to children whilst teaching correct technique in a manner that can be adapted to different skill levels.

Working from my Willetton studio, I teach Art and runs a school Holiday Program for Children and Resin Art workshops for Adults.

I have been working with Resin for 3 years and have exhibited some of my large scale Seascapes in December 2020 sold many pieces to clients & Galleries.

I like to teach children a wide range of mediums including Drawing, Clay, Acrylic, pastel and Oil Paints, I generally work in Pastels for custom portraits and Oils for my more contemporary style painting.

Specialising in original commissioned Custom portrait paintings and more contemporary stylistic, colourful works. I had always been an animal lover and have always been drawn to horses. Over the past 5 years I have worked hard to develop my own style of Equine Art.
