Christmas Holiday Programme 2017!

“The Sun”, 1909 – Edvard Munch

Session 1

Wednesday 20th December: – Tudor Kings and Queens!

Tudor monarchs Henry VIII and his daughter Elizabeth I with their glittering courts, colourful lives and statesmanship drove through changes that took England to powerful statehood.  We will create Tudor style portraits, taking ideas from Court painter Hans Holbein

Their portraits are in the National Portrait Gallery link here!

Session 2

Thursday 21st December: – Pop Art Perspective Landscapes!

Come and have fun creating Pop Art landscapes with perspective and neon, inspired by American artist and graphic designer, Peter Max.  Pictured his poster“Outside Lands”,  2013

Session 3

Friday 22nd December: – Sharks!  Learn fascinating shark facts and paint a great seascape!

There are over 400 species of shark but only 3% of species are dangerous to us – you are more likely to die in a lightening strike or a bee attack; sharks are as old as dinosaurs!  Sharks can have up to 3000 teeth!  Whale sharks live to be over 150 years old – possibly the longest living animals in the world!

Session 4

Thursday 28th December: – Mixed Media Pop Art Snowmen!

We will use gouache paint, soft pastel and charcoal to create a snowman and shadow on a winter landscape – Christmas theme optional

Session 5

Friday 29th December: – Monet-inspired Winter landscapes!

Winter of 1868-1869 was exceptionally cold in France and Claude Monet, French Impressionist and giant of Modern Art, used the cold snap to capture the effect of dazzling winter sun on snow. “The Magpie” (right) is one of around 140 snowscapes that Monet produced

We will learn about  Monet’s life and art, and create a wonderful snowscape in his style

Session 6

Wednesday 3rd January: – Firefly Art!

Fireflies are actually beetles not flies!  A chemical reaction makes them glow; adults, larvae (babies) and eggs glow!  Paint and learn about these amazing glowing UK-resident insects
