I run various 2 hour art sessions for children, listed below. Contact me for more details, or to book. Six week after-school courses begin in September, or check here for upcoming courses.
Courses are a chance to gain a greater understanding of art while building confidence in drawing and painting and trying out other creative techniques with other children. All materials provided.
Cyanotype or Sunprints
Cyanotype or sun printing is a form of camera-less photography that requires treated paper, objects, the sun or a UV light source indoors, and water to produce a cyan-blue print. Objects such as leaves, feathers, buttons etc. are arranged on the paper, exposed under UV light for a few minutes and washed in water. Beautiful, fascinating compositions emerge like magic.
Styrofoam plates, textures and organic matter such as leaves are used, and children get to roller and experiment with different coloured, water-based ink, creating as many designs as they like.
