Please note that the programme is for 5 mornings or 5 afternoons or 5 whole days.

Mornings: 9:00 am - 12.00 pm - Mexican Folk Art Angels

In this class the children will look at Mexican folk art and using mixed media they will create an art work of an angel. There will be an opportunity for them to work with a new tool, a "Bejeweller," to add the final decorative touches to their masterpieces. Here are some examples of the kind of art works we could create:

Here are some examples created by other children:

Mornings - Clay - Xmas here we come

The children loved working with the clay and created an amazing array of Xmas art works that will be heirloom pieces for their families. The clay has been fired in the kiln and the children have painted, glazed, oxided or taken home their master pieces in its bisque state.

The children drew bugs and beetles that they painted onto fabric. Then they sewed on the legs using an assortment of beads. Each child created 2 different bugs, one for each side of their bag. Now their art works have been sewn into designer bags.

In Week 1 of the holiday programme the children had great fun producing these Picasso Style art works. They also created some Picasso clay tiles that are now air drying before they will be fired.
In Week 2 of the holiday programme the class was full and 9 of the children created Picasso Style art works. Becky, who had attended Week 1 as well, chose to create an art work based on the theme of Russian architecture on an A2 sheet of toiling foil and she did some weaving using clay.

Morning Sessions: Sculpture

Here are the sculptures that the children created after looking at Jeff Thompson's Corrugated Iron sculptures. The photos of the fish don't show that they are 3D box like sculpture. The portraits were created by collaging the faces together. They were made as a wall hanging.

Afternoon Sessions: Drawing

Tanya McCabe has a very distinctive style which appealed to the children. They analysed her style and then created their own art work in that style using vivid markers and water colour pencil. Those who finished early rolled out a slab on the new slab roller and then cut away the clay to expose their cat.
