Our Mission Statement

MA-FI ARTS aims to give students:

  • Opportunities to explore a wide range of materials and different processes.
  • Professional and expert guidance and practical demonstration.
  • Positive, affirmative, developmental, non-threatening commentary.
  • Confidence building encouragement in creative and technical skills.

We always start with a drawing session developing both observation and imagination. After that students can choose: Painting, Sculpture, Printmaking, Pottery (Hand or Wheel work) and Mask Making. Kids are able to move from process to process or stick with one process.

The Teachers

Fiona Shaw-Robertson and Matthew Robertson, teach together, hold BFA Degrees and are practicing artists working skilfully with a diverse range of methods and media. We are very well equipped and provide a wide array of different tools and materials. We have been running these very popular and highly successful classes since 2001.

Matthew, (Dip Teaching) is a teacher, trained to teach both primary and secondary school students. He has many years of experience as a State High School teacher. We also run adult evening classes in: Mask-Making, Pottery, Painting, Wood & Stone Sculpture.
