Beginning on Saturday 25th of February.
This course is suitable for primary school age children.

In term 1 we will be looking at the work of surrealist Frida Kahlo. We will examine the beauty of self-portraiture and the wonder of dream-like narratives all while exploring different painting materials and techniques.

In this 6 week general art class, students can expect to gain specialised technical skills from professional practicing artists as well as the freedom, space and encouragement to pursue their own personal unique style. An overarching theme will be explored each term and various 2D materials will be explored in relation to the theme. The work of contemporary and traditional artists will be introduced.

Class sizes are limited to 8 students in order to ensure that each student receives individual help, feedback, and attention. High quality materials are used, and an emphasis is placed on drawing out the unique vision and ability of each child in a fun and supportive environment.
