How we teach...

Most children love art. They are brave about it too, with very little inhibitions about what they make and no fear of a blank canvas. We aim to keep it that way. 

We work with each child to help them develop their artistic skills with small prompts such as “have a look out of the window…can you see how the sky touches the ground? Now have another go and try to get the blue sky to meet the green grass” and with the older ones “Think about the bone structure inside the animal you are drawing, the poor horse has his knee bending the wrong way.” We like to have fun with the children whilst getting them to pick up a whole variety of knowledge to help them become better artists.

Confidence is something we work on as well. It is one of the most important attributes to making great art. We encourage the children to be positive about their art, not to panic about mistakes and to give things a try.  


Describing an art lesson...

Each lesson the children work on a project. We present the children with an idea and show them the technique. We then encourage them to develop their idea through sketches to work out a good composition.

For example:

The theme for this course was 'Places' and the project was about vanishing points and perspectives. 

The children were asked to find the vanishing point on these images.

They were shown how to create a 3D city with a vanishing point and had to come up with a monster to attack the city 'Godzilla' style. This was a two week project and here are the results….
