October – Cut and Paste
Cut and paste the old fashion way as we explore the technique of collage! This will be a mixed media workshop that will put your creativity to the test!
Example Activity: Create a drawing or painting (let dry), cut work up and reassemble pieces to create a likeness of the original. This can also be done in the style of Pablo Picasso or a Cubist inspiration to introduce art historical context for older students.
November – A Splash of Colour
It’s time to get colourful and messy during this Abstract inspired painting session! Join us as we explore techniques of famous painters like Jackson Pollock and Piet Mondrian.
Example Activity: Create our own Broadway Boogie Woogies. Use low-quality painters tape on paper to block out white areas then remaining areas with primary colours. Introduce Mondrian and original Broadway Boogie Woogie prior.
December – Traditional Drawing Techniques
This course will give every budding artist a taste of the drawing basics! We will experiment with traditional drawing materials such as graphite and charcoal, and get a new perspective of the world around us!
Example Activity: Looking at the world with a new perspective and looking at the basic shapes around us. Practice breaking objects down into basic shapes then choosing something to draw but only using basic shapes – Circles, squares, rectangles, triangles / Spheres, cubes, cylinders for more advanced participants.
