LOCATION Art Studios
This programme of drawing and painting projects will exercise the visual young mind to see things they never realised that they could. Street art, as well as historic painting will be used as inspiration and support to make a collection of small and large scale art works. All will be encouraged to work collectively as well as individually, with the final outcome to produce a final exhibition that can be shared and then documented for future reference.
Suitable for all levels of experience, this course will inspire young-minded exploration of all of the visual elements such as line, tone, texture, shape and form using a wide range of dry and wet materials such as pencil, pastels and water-based paints.
