‘Young Designers’:
Drawing upon your child’s infinite well of creativity, with wild imaginations children will create their own intuitive abstract designs.

Focusing on shapes, design and colour effects, children will enjoy using professional artist painting mediums that are rich in pigment and come in a range of vibrant colours.  Masterpieces will be made on 100% cotton and acid free water colour paper which will last a lifetime.I will guide your child to discover their creative voice and at the end of the 6 week course they will have a professional quality work of art completed to a high standard, which they feel proud to take home.
