Sunday Kids Art Club – Abstract Painting with Cold Wax
Oil / Painting / Abstract – Materials included
Learn how to build up layers to create abstract paintings with cold wax, full of texture and depth. The workshop will also look at fun mark-making techniques using a range of tools and materials. Young artists will leave with a small series of works on paper and new knowledge of this fun and diverse medium.
For children aged 7-10, 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.
We are happy to continue to offer 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.
