WHAT TO EXPECT
Kidz Love Art Painting Courses are facilitated by a qualified artist with +10 years of teaching experience and delivered over 2-hour painting workshops for a period of 6 consecutive weeks. All art materials are provided. We will provide water and fruit juice, and the kids are invited to bring along their own snacks if they wish so to enjoy a social break throughout the 2-hour workshop.
Children learn about colour, art themes and explore a variety of painting techniques based on famous artists and genres of art. Every week the course focuses on new interesting and engaging topics as the child grows on their journey of creating their own unique masterpiece.
At the end of each 2-hour workshop, your child will leave with another piece of artwork to add to their personal portfolio which showcases their personal artistic style in response to the weekly theme.
As a parent you can confidently leave your kids under our supervision and trust that their happiness and safety is our top priority as they focus on their journey of artistic exploration and lose themselves in creativity, away from their phones and devices.
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 from within.
Level 2 Course:
Revise and build on the skills learned in Level 1 course to deepen knowledge and exploration of the elements of Art. This course is also open and accessible to beginners and students who have not completed Level 1.
Week 1: ‘Dive Into Colour’ inspired by Abstract Art. We will dive deeper into colour theory and tertiary colours, practicing mixing new colours and learning how colour can represent or create different moods and emotions in a painting. The children will then use this knowledge to express their mood through their colour palette and Abstract painting.
Week 2: ‘Colour Buddies’ inspired by great still life artists. We will explore our colour theory knowledge further and learn about complementary colours and how they can impact our artwork. We will focus on scale and compostion to create a still life painting, inspired by great still life artists who also focus on colour for impact.
Week 3: ‘What a View!’ inspired by great landscape artists. In this lesson we will delve into different methods to create perspective and look at how great artists use these in the landscape art. The children will then put these skills into action by painting their favourite landscape view!
Weeks 4 and 5: ‘My Style’ inspired by all of our current learning. During these 2 weeks, children will create their final masterpiece on canvas and will choose which subject they would like to focus on, based on our learning throughout the course. They will first focus on sketching the composition of their masterpiece, being introduced to the grid drawing method and considering perspective, size and proportion. They will then apply their advanced colour theory knowledge to create an image in their own unique style. Collage mixed media may also be added to create texture.
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!
