SUMMER ART CLUB 2022

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 we can work on complicated projects and projects that need time to dry.  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.

  

 

This year there are 3 x week long courses to choose from:

JULY 18TH -22ND: TIME TRAVELLERS

JULY 25TH-29TH: NATURAL WONDERS  (FULL)

AUGUST 8TH – 12TH: TREASURE HUNTERS  

 

 

20160601_1043471

We will be looking at drawing, painting, printing, as well as sculpture and other messy activities including paper making, mosaic and book making.   These week long workshops will be very messy so please wear old clothes and be prepared to get your hands dirty! Mon-Fri, 9-3pm  £300 for all week

JULY 18th – 22nd JULY:  TIME TRAVELLERS

“Trust me I’m the Doctor” – We will journeying back in time courtesy of the Time Lord, in his Tardis, which will come in useful for taking home all the precious things we find on our travels.  We will also be making a travel log of our journey to remind us of all the amazing things we discover, from Ancient Egypt, we will be finding out about sacred animals and papyrus scrolls, from Medieval England we will design our own palaces complete with people and animals and design illuminated letters and armoury and at the end of the week we will design and take home our own time capsule.

JULY 25TH – 29TH JULY: NATURAL WONDERS FULL

We will begin by working on large gestural drawings and making a travel journal as a guide to the week.  We then travel to China, looking at Mount Everest and tiny miniature bonsai trees.  From there, we travel to Norway to the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) quickly followed by the rain forests of Africa to look at the amazing chameleon and madagasky rainbow frog amongst others.  A quick visit to Hawaii to watch “Mauna Loa” erupting and then a fast return home via the African Sahara.

AUGUST 8 – 12TH:  TREASURE HUNTERS

We begin by looking at famous treasure hunters and how they worked.  We will make a ships log as a journal to record events and make some gold coins.  We then discover the Silk Road and decide to make some paper money, before discovering Tutankhamen’s story of mystery and intrigue.  The gold rush of America follows and we make some precious gems and miniature gold ornaments.  Lastly we discover stories of lost treasure yet to be discovered, such as the Knights Templar and the Amber Room

 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.

    My partner and I would love to do sessions like these, but cannot get involved in weekdays.
    Do you have any weekend sessions available by any chance?
    Thank you
    Kim

    • lemmonforart August 15, 2021 at 4:35 pm #

      Hi Kimberley, I usually start the adult workshops in September/October. They mostly happen on a Sunday afternoon as that seems to be quite a good time for people. If you give me your email address I’ll put you down on my mailing list and keep you posted for events. I also teach 1:1 if that is of interest, so if you wanted to learn to paint in a specific medium or have a special class on drawing I could help you with that. As with the group workshops, the 1:1 will also start up again in September/October and you can let me know which day and when is most convenient for you. Best wishes, Frances
