Please note that this workshop will only run until Fri 30th March 2012.
Get in touch with nature at the gallery. Explore paintings and sculpture that help you discover the seasons, mini beasts, wildlife and things you find in the garden. Pupils document their journey creating colourful paintings using mixed media.
Our tour of the Gallery introduces the theme of nature using paintings and sculpture. During the tour, the children will interact with artworks to explore the senses and use role play to step inside a painting. They also make drawings inspired by the artworks using coloured pencils and wax crayons.
In the studio these drawings are developed further and the children experiment with different ways of working. Paintings are then created with the artist leading the workshop, using a variety of techniques.
"Children really enjoy experimenting with the different techniques and the teachers and carers are amazed by the paintings they create."
Pat, workshop leader.
