Drawing from the Garden

Sunday 23 July 2017, 12.30–3pm V22 Louise House

Local artist Liz Atkin is offering two sessions at Louise House where children will work directly from the flora and fauna of the beautiful garden at Louise House. She will guide the children to create unique artworks, building their observational skills and introduce a range of drawing techniques in a lively and inclusive style.

Children will be introduced to working with different materials, from charcoal and chalk, to oil pastels and water colours. They will look at the styles of famous artists for inspiration to introduce children to particular approaches and drawing materials.

12.30pm: Ages 5 to 7 years

2.00pm: Ages 8 to 12 years 

Classes are one hour long. 

Anyone under the age of 16 years must be accompanied by an adult.

Spaces are limited and allocated on a first come, first serve basis. Please arrive early to avoid disappointment.
