In our 6 week painting courses, your kids will explore, learn and build confidence with colour
theories, application of colour, composition and layout skills along with further development of their
technical skills and vocabulary.
At Kidz Love Art, we believe that every child deserves to set free their inner artist; every ‘smudged’
line or stroke can easily become part of a tremendous masterpiece that helps your child to develop
Summer Term Course (Level 1):
Suitable and accessible for beginners, as well as building on and further developing the
skills learned in our other Kidz Love Art courses this school year.
- Week 1: ‘Friendship’ inspired by Pop Art. We teach children about primary colours, shapes and
composition. We are guided by key figures in Pop Art.Week 2: ‘My Favourite Place’ inspired by Impressionism. In this lesson, children will be taught the
secondary colours and introduced to using composition and painting techniques to get the
Impressionistic feel and perspective.
Week 3: ‘Under The Microscope’ inspired by Abstract Art. Children will be introduced to tertiary
colours. They will look at new compositions through a ‘viewfinder’, and begin to think about how to
create various gradients in painting.
Weeks 4 and 5: ‘Identity’ inspired by Symbolism. During these 2 weeks, children will begin their final
masterpiece on canvas and will create a personality self-portrait. They will first focus on sketching
facial proportions and then combine their colour theory and composition knowledge to create an
image that represents them. Collage mixed media, illustrations or symbols can also be included so
children can express their personality or their interests/hobbies.
Week 6: Group Exhibition of young artists’ masterpieces. It’s a real celebration where they feel a
great sense of achievement and showcase their final masterpiece to parents!
