Sunday Club - Active Looking Photography
Mixed Media - Materials included
For children aged 7-12, this is a Kids Art Club like no other, where children get to work on easels and use the same high art quality materials as our adult courses. They are taught by experienced artist tutors and start to take their first steps as Young Artists.
For the first time, we have a Photography workshop for you! Join Ruth Purdy and her team from Mitber to explore the M A G I C of photography. Get better at taking photos with a smartphone, take part in some fun challenges and produce your photography. Print 3 of your photographs to take home and have your work submitted for exhibition in 2023.
The photo challenges will revolve around the concept of M A G I C -Mindful, Active, Generous, Interested, Connected. Active looking in the world around us can help us live happier lives and help us be truly present in the moment.
We are happy to continue offering limited FREE Scholarship places for those on low income. Please contact Cat Lee Youth Arts Manager for a Scholarship application form to apply email@example.com.
