Education Program

A real passion for us here at SBS is engaging and supporting the community, with our mission being to celebrate, promote and encourage the arts.

We welcome students and school groups to tour our space, to have the opportunity to further engage with artists who have studios at SBS and see exhibitions by renowned local and national artists. Our studio artists and staff are always happy to have a chat and show students around.

Interested in coming with a group to our space? Please don’t hesitate to get in touch at southernbuoystudios@gmail.com

She draws mostly from life with a simple continuous line style, putting her pen down and not moving it until there is something interesting on the page. Leyla is offering an experimental workshop using this single line technique guiding students through many different exercises to explore this way of drawing . A great way to develop hand-eye coordination and observation skills.
