Easter Holiday Art School for 6-13yrs

9th-11th April 2019 (9.30am - 3.30pm)

Celestine Thomas and Matt Davies will be holding an exciting and informative three day painting school for children this April at our studio in Whetstone. Students will explore a variety of subject matter, experiment with a number of painting processes and techniques, and learn about the work of relevant artists and art movements.

Students will be divided into two groups depending on their age.

Day 1: A Celebration of Colour:

Students will explore the properties of colour though a series of exciting short workshop activities and investigate the work of painters who celebrate colour in their work. These activities will be followed by making an acrylic painting in response to the artists they have been introduced to.

Day 2: Painting Places in Oils:

The second day will start with investigating the properties of oil paints and experimenting with oil painting techniques, and learning how to apply oil paint to create successful landscapes. The afternoon will be devoted to producing an oil painting on canvas from a photograph of a landscape, cityscape or seascape.

Day 3: Painting People using Watercolour:

The final day will be devoted to painting people using watercolour techniques. The morning will be spent learning how to capture the essence of figures and faces in preparation for making a watercolour painting of a constructed scene in the afternoon.

Please note that it is necessary for children to attend all three days.
