Art For All Ages


We offer creative and fun educational programs informed and inspired by our art collection. 





Our Sculptor in Residence, Stefan Damschke, was a student of Karl Duldig. Stefan worked alongside Karl Duldig and was his assistant in Karl’s later years. He teaches students using clay modelling methods favoured by Karl. This continues the heritage of teaching and creativity at the Duldig Studio, as an extension of our Artists’ Studio.

Please contact us for more information or to customise an education program.


The City of Stonnington proudly supports Duldig Studio’s Art For All Ages education programs.

Clay For Kids

Now in its 10th year, our program of clay workshops for upper primary school students, run by professional sculptor Stefan Damschke, has grown in popularity. As well as providing an art program meeting the requirements of the Victorian Curriculum, Clay For Kids offers activities of artistic excellence. During the holidays, Stefan offers Clay Masterclasses to small and supportive groups of talented students in a real artists' studio!

Painting, Drawing And Illustration Classes

Developed by professional artists including award winning children's book author, illustrator and artist, Tull Suwannakit, these successful programs are offered to junior and upper secondary school students. Our classes are inspired by the Studio's collection and tailored to your school's requirements.


Still Firing! - Sculpture Journeys In Clay


A creative clay sculpture program of clay workshops to encourage sensory expression through artistic creation for seniors, run by our Sculptor in Residence, Stefan Damschke, is offered to Emmy Monash Aged Care through the generous sponsorship of Gandel Philanthropy.

This new program brings together arts and culture, community development and social  inclusion which are key objectives of the three organisations forming this collaboration .
