Travel to the past to discover how art has changed throughout history and be inspired to create pieces based on key artists and movements, from Picasso to Pop Art and everything in between and beyond. Your emerging artist will learn composition, design, perspective and more, while having fun and creating unique pieces. Students will be working with a number of mediums such as acrylic paint, watercolour, pastels, and charcoal, along with techniques such as printmaking and collage to create two dimensional and three-dimensional works. The class includes trips to the Centre’s onsite galleries to learn through interacting with the artwork in the current exhibitions. The session will end with an art show where students are invited to share their creativity and pieces with their families. All materials provided.
