Materials included

This unique Art History course for children will cover a range of subjects and the use of various techniques.
Each class is inspired by an artist or art movement.

In Part 1 we will try out different techniques and materials including

  • specialist pencils
  • acrylic paint
  • oil pastel resist
  • mixed media
  • watercolor magic
  • making own brushes

Part 2 will be dedicated to topics:

  • Portraiture
  • Objects and Meanings
  • Modern Art
  • Investigating Patterns
  • Landscapes

During the course each child will 

  • develop their knowledge on the topics
  • create a portfolio of works
  • work on improving their own style and technique so they can work at home with a wider range of possibilities
  • develop more confidence

Children will learn about the main artists who changed art history through their new approach.
The course will also allow the understanding of how to look at paintings and express own feelings through creativity.

Additionally there will be a field trip to visit art galleries and museums to experience the real artwork connected with the topic we study.
