This workshop ticks all the boxes for our young artists. Colour theory and design elements will be explored before the children prepare the backgrounds of their artworks learning to blend the paint.  They will enjoy great creativity drawing from life, insect’s, flowers and leaves that they will then cut out and consider design elements when placing the spring inspired shapes to be then stenciled onto their backgrounds. The colour and shapes of spring are celebrated in this wonderful workshop. – Julia

Abstract painting

Friday 3rd October  9 am – 3 pm.
for children in years 1, 2 and 3.

We have chosen this very popular workshop for the last day because our artists can relax as they enjoy a lot of freedom to create their own design, working from a still life which will have been set up in the middle of the studio. We choose Picasso because he broke all the rules and our young artists can do the same. Painting an abstract still life is very pleasurable for the young artists.  No matter how many times a still life is painted, it is always a fresh painting, a new experience. A great painting day to finish off  these school holidays. – Basia
