Our first Kids Creativity Class of the summer is June 16th
I’m pretty excited to venture into doing my own classes for kids. I’m starting this year with once a week classes for 9 to 13 year olds. Next year, I will probably branch out to younger and older kids, especially if we have a gallery manager who can take over some of the work. [grin]
Energy movement, expression of form, creation of meaningful, new forms. Invented tools. Unique paint brushes. Drawing with found objects and natural materials. Creative. Expressive. Fun. Outside-the-box!
Our second Kids Creativity sesh for 9 to 13 year old kids, is all about abstract painting and mark-making.It’s about breaking out of the urge to paint like a photograph, or realistically. It’s about expressing the feelings we have, or the feeling of a thing. It’s one way to get away from, “I-can’t-draw-horses-that-look-like-horses-so-I’m-giving-up,” to “Oh! I love riding horses (riding my skateboard/climbing trees/swimming …) and I know how that feels! I can paint the way it feels!”
Learn how to make your own paintbrushes and mark-making tools out of non-traditional and traditional materials. Handmade brushes can help you establish your own “palette” of personal marks and strokes to make your artwork truly your own.
Only 6 spaces in this workshop! Pre-registration is required.
