“Art is a fundamental part of society in that it is a creative outlet for people from all walks of life and can lead to a plethora of great opportunities through the development of creative and, in the case of a class, their social skills.

“Fairfield City Museum & Gallery is looking to engage an art tutor to deliver art classes for children ages 6 to 12 on Saturday mornings during term four, from 21 October.

“We want the successful tutor to deliver a fun and structured program which will develop the students’ drawing, painting and other creative skills.”
