Artstart Easter Holiday Art School

April 15th @ 9:30 am - April 18th @ 3:30 pm

Make the most of the Easter break with our creative camp for 6 to 12 year olds

Curated by our experienced team of artists, this 4 day camp is jam packed with a variety of creative activities.

Timetable

Monday 15th April

‘Totes awesome!  we start the week with silkscreen, designing and printing our own superhero cotton tote bags.  Children are encouraged to be as creative as they like as they design and embellish their bag with Posca acrylic art pens and heat transfer vinyl.

Tuesday 16th April

Making good use of the things that we find – As our week gets underway, we’ll be using Monoprinting from the Gelli plate to create our own Easter cards.  Harnessing the beauty of nature, we’ll learn about texture and colour by gathering leaves and flowers for our cards.

Wednesday 17th April

Drawing with Scissors –  today we take our inspiration from Matisse as we create stunning collages and craft them into lino relief prints.

Thursday 18th April

‘Día de Muertos’ – On the final day of our camp, we’ll consume ourselves in all things Mexican, with our Day of the Dead mask making. Out of paper, paint and embellishments we will make our own Sugar Skull Masks to paint, decorate, wear and keep.  Children can also try making their own “Luchador” wrestling mask from a cast of their face.

Summary:

These activities are suitable for children 6yrs+ and, as well as being fun and educational, children will take home their unique tote bag and decorated mask which can be worn with an elasticated band.
