SUMMER ART CLUB 2020

The summer art club is a week long course running 9-3pm looking at different aspects of creativity working with a professional artist in a safe, relaxed, enclosed environment. Because it runs over 5 days the children make new friends and work together and at the end of the week they present an exhibition of their work to their family and friends, something that they are always proud to do.

 SUMMER ART CLUB 2019

Monday 29th July: BIG AND SMALL – Finding inspiration from everything around us, we will hunt down plants, animals and fruit shapes to build up a weird and wonderful portfolio of mark making using large pieces of paper, charcoal and chalk, pastels on sticks, feathers with ink, felt pens and magical colour pigments.  Then we will look into using these drawings to build up a story with a hero (whichever animal we drew in the morning) to make into a fold out story to go inside a match box.

Tuesday 30th July: 9-3: POP ART – We spend the morning sketching animals which will improve our quick decisive marks on paper.  These drawings will then be turned into Monotype and Styrofoam prints which will be the starting point to make bright pop art acrylic paintings. 

Wednesday 31st July: 9-3:  MESSY WEDNESDAY – Every week has to have one very messy day and this is it; dress appropriately please! Making gorgeous gooey Gelatine prints of some of the objects we found on Monday and shaving foam Marbelling paper are just two of the fun techniques we will be looking at.

Thursday 1st August: 9-3: MOSAIC – Great opportunity today to try your hand at creating a garden mosaic using small mosaic stones and also hand painting larger ceramic tiles to tell a story that is about the garden; the animals and plants within it.  If you are here all week, the storytelling can be a continuation of your matchbox story.

Friday 2nd August: 9-3: COLLAGE – Having worked hard all week we should now have a huge supply of exciting and beautiful papers, some of the sketches, drawings, prints we made, that can be cut up and things that we have found along the way in the garden – perfect to make into a beautiful collage.

The last afternoon will be spent tidying up and getting our exhibition ready for family and friends to come and admire what we have achieved.
