This painting workshop will prompt children to look at themselves and their sense of self to produce self-portraits in a variety of manners. As they experience painting on a variety of surfaces, they will use collage as a tool to create artworks that represent themselves going beyond their physical appearance. At the same time, this session will provide the young artists with a deep exploration of color in a hand-on and experimental manner. This series of drawing and painting classes for children is aimed to unlock the creative potential by tapping into their imagination and by letting them explore materials as they playfully learn about light, color, form, shape, textures and composition.
