Enable your child to explore their creativity through drawing and painting...

Only 6 places available to ensure personalised tuition from our expert artist-in-residence, Steve Haigh. 

Each week the children will begin by exploring the key elements of the design composition through drawing, in their own sketchbook.  They will be encouraged to record colour mixing in their sketchbook and experiment with brushtrokes/ application techniques thus providing a valuable reference for personal development in their own work away from the Studio.

The children will be working on canvas for their painting, experimenting with acrylics and exploring different application techniques with a variety of tools.

All of the above will both encourage the progress of fine motor skills and sharpen students hand and eye coordination.

Discussion and general debate about their experience and progress is encouraged during all stages of the workshop in order to build self-confidence in public speaking and social development.  

Subject matter will change each week, ranging from landscape to abstract to still-life to graffitti!
