Sunday Club - Selfie workshop
- 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.
Led by portrait artist Alice Ellis-Bray who recently exhibited at the Penwith Gallery, explore ideas behind the self-portrait. Alice will help you discover how you can represent yourself through colours, marks and symbols. She will then lead you through the process of making your own ‘zine’ on which you will develop your set of small paintings.
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.

Alice Ellis Bray
” I don’t believe in mistakes when it comes to making art. I encourage finding a belief in each line made, or brush stroke painted, and exploring further into how different stages of creativity trigger different emotions.”
In her own practice Alice works with costume, painting, performance, and script to explore the infinite possibilities of identity and experience. Through learning the properties of nature and the nature of people, Alice seeks to portray an interconnectedness she has with all things.
