Palette Knife Painting

This beginner class gives you the opportunity to try painting with a knife rather than a traditional brush. We will look at basic marks and strokes that can be made before you choose a subject of you own to complete. You will be supported as you try an abstract or representational subject. Aimed at those who just want to have a go at something they may never have tried before, we will have fun experimenting and enjoy the process of learning.

We are so lucky to have Dr. Yvonne McCartney, a GP who is passionate about women’s health and a member of The Australasian Menopause Society to present on this topic.

Community Arts Projects

In 2022, Geelong Neighbourhood House offered a series of exciting Community Arts Projects. These were called Buildings of Pako, The Growling Grass Frog and Balyang Sanctuary. In partnership with Geelong West Library they have been successfully exhibited and open to public viewing at the library. The Balyang Sanctuary artworks are currently on display at Geelong West Library.

Class price increase

We want to inform you of our price increases for term 4 and beyond.

We have not had a price increase since 2016!!

Our Committee of Management recently voted on a small increase to offset our rising overhead costs.

You will notice a slight increase for most of our classes, in most cases, this will only be a few dollars per class. If this increase causes a problem for you, please talk to our Coordinator, Lisa or email
