‘Whispers of the Land’ with Suzanne Hennegrave (for children aged 7-15) // Thursday 23rd August 11am -12 noon (free but please book in advance)
Suzanne Hennegrave will be discussing her life and journey as a landscape painter. This interactive talk will give children an insight into the artistic/poetic way of experiencing the world around us and in turn encourage them to view, in more depth, and hopefully foster a greater appreciation of, the beauty that surrounds them daily. It will also give them valuable tools for examining works of art in general and will explore themes relating to environmental conservation. They will be given opportunities to draw with pastels, read poetry about found objects and do some creative writing. The Natural World is constantly communicating with us and whispering glorious messages and warnings that we sadly, so often do not hear, due to our fast lives that are increasingly being taking over by modern technology.
The workshop is aimed at children from ages 7-15 years. Suzanne is an experienced Art teacher and has much experience working with children and art.
Parents can either enjoy the talk or have a cuppa in Café12/31on site, but must remain in the church. Talk duration 1 hour. All materials will be provided.
