Go on a walk with Cornish artist John Dyer. Learn from him to capture your journey with sketches on a visual treasure hunt, starting at the studio and finishing at the beach.
Sunday Kids Art Club – Document a Journey with John Dyer
Waterbased / Landscape – Materials included
Inspired by John’s illustrative and colourful style, create a painting back at the studio using the sketches you’ve made. Known for his famous seagull and his artist in residence project at Eden, he brings a wealth of experience to help you create a painting. Use bright acrylic paints and learn how to lay out your painting and simplify shapes.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
