We will be studying the Sunflower series of paintings by the great Vincent Van Gogh and various techniques used in his process.

We will be making artwork inspired by the famous local author C.S Lewis. Anything from Lions, to Witches, to wardrobes!! The final day I will be teaching the children how to cut and print there very own lino Prints!
This is a great opportunity for young people interested in art to meet new friends and create some amazing art!
Dawn has created a course to push your little one’s creativity and imagination during the East Holidays. Working in all different types of medium throughout the three days with all materials being provided.
All the classes and workshops are held at Whalley Fine Art were the children will create high quality memorable art allowing them to develop fundamental skills in a fun and exciting way.
I have found over the last few years that by teaching the children to get back to the basics of drawing, painting and sculpting can really help them in becoming more confident and creative in their thinking in everyday life. Most of all I will make their experience fun and it is always a chance to meet new friends and paint with an established artist and experience a studio/gallery type environment! A great activity for the East Holidays!
There will be a small lunchtime break each day, so please bring a packed lunch!
The Art School has a 'No Nut' policy.
