These two hour intensive workshops seek to develop both creative design thinking alongside foundational art skills. Each workshop is the celebration of the life and works of a different artist or designer. Please note that we offer puppet workshops for younger children who are looking to learn art, design and making skills.

SEPTEMBER 2nd / Carson Ellis: Illustration
Students will stretch their imagination, composition skills and colour work to create visual story ideas with a nod to contemporary illustrator Carson Ellis.
SEPTEMBER 30th / Jacob Lawrence: Collage/mixed media
Looking at the striking, political work of Jacob Lawrence, participants will consider collage, colour and figure work to create their own images.
OCTOBER 28th / Leonardo Da Vinci: Tonal Drawing and Drawing the Head
It's nearly Halloween and what is Halloween without a few skulls?! Drawing skills will be sharpened as we look at form and tone in this spooky workshop.
NOVEMBER 25th / Christmas Printmaking: Lino Cutting and Printing
Continuing our annual winter tradition, we will be designing, cutting and printing our own festive lino stamps, as well as printing some Christmas Menagerie animals.
