TUESDAY 10th JANUARY

 

*** BOOKED OUT *** 1) WATER COLOUR FOR KIDS // TUESDAY 10th JANUARY // 10:00AM-11:30AM

What happens when you sprinkle salt on watercolour paint? Or scrunch up cling wrap? Or use candles, masking tape or oil pastels? In this workshop we will experiment with a stack of different ways to use water colour paints and get some super cool effects on paper. We will then work together to create an A4 watercolour artwork to frame and take home. With our water colour queen, Kate Bower.

 

WEDNESDAY 11th JANUARY

 

*** 4 spaces left *** 2) BRUSH LETTERING FOR KIDS // WEDNESDAY 11th JANUARY // 10:00AM-11:30AM // AGES 8+

Mrs Flannelette returns these school holidays! We couldn’t get enough of her last holidays, so we have invited her back with her gorgeous energy and love of working with young people. During this fun and relaxed class, students will learn all the basics required to become modern calligraphy superstars, including fauxligraphy and brush marker lettering. By the end of the class the students will have designed and created a hand lettered quote, ready to frame and hang on the wall.

 

*** BOOKED OUT *** 3) STUDIO TIME – KID’S ART CLUB // WEDNESDAY 11th JANUARY // 12-1.30PM // ALL AGES

In this session we are opening up Create Hub for any young person to come and spend some time with us, in a non-structured way. The art room will be open, they will have free reign of art supplies, they can come with a project in mind, or we can work through some ideas with them. A time to chill out, let the creativity flow and have a great time. We will be on hand to offer advice, the music will be on and the snacks will be aplenty. A great way for young artists to feel free and experiment with a range of mediums. With Claire Harris.

 

TUESDAY 17th JANUARY

 

*** BOOKED OUT *** 4) MINECRAFT RETURNS // TUESDAY 17th JANUARY // 10:00AM-11:30AM // ALL AGES

After so much success sin our Spring school holidays we are bringing our Minecraft themed workshop BACK!!! This workshop is to give all those parents a break from the excited, constant and relentless Minecraft chatter (I have a 7 year old son, i get it) and pull all those kooky fans together with likeminded kids in this multi artform Minecraft inspired workshop. We will GEEK OUT big time over worlds, characters, talk strategy and draw/create our own Minecraft Character. THEN, we will work as a group to create a CREATE HUB SIZED Minecraft world out of recycled objects. Please NOTE: You wont go home with a high end work of art from this workshop, but rather, this is an opportunity for young people to come together and bond over their love of the game, and get messy using their BIG imaginations. With Claire Harris.

 

*** BOOKED OUT *** 5) COMIC MAKING // TUESDAY 17TH JANUARY // 12-1:30PM // ALL AGES

This workshop is an opportunity for kids to delve deep into their imaginations to create alternate worlds, characters, develop a narrative (or not!) and create their very own comic (picture story book for the littlies) to take home. It’s a great flow on from the Minecraft session! With Claire Harris

 

WEDNESDAY 18th JANUARY

 

*** BOOKED OUT *** 6) ALL THE PRETTY THINGS // WEDNESDAY 18th JANUARY // 10:00AM-11:30AM // ALL AGES

There’s one in every family right? The one that loves all the mess, all the glitter, all the colour and ALL THE PRETTY THINGS! That was me, so I’ve basically created this workshop for everybody like me who LOVES MAKING A MESS! Children will have access to a range of materials (glitter, paint pens, sparkle foam, sequins) to create glittery, glamourous and spectacular artworks, exploring collage and some basic lettering, each can frame one artwork to take home. With Claire Harris

 

*** BOOKED OUT *** 7) PAINTING PERFECTION – INSPIRED BY PETE CROMER’S BIRD // WEDNESDAY 18th JANUARY // 12-1:30PM // ALL AGES

I for one LOVE the work of artist Pete Cromer, his brightly coloured collage looking birds and animals. In this class students will practice some drawing skills with some quick-fire drawing games, and then work to create their own A3 Pete Cromer inspired bird with a combination of watercolour, oil pastels, pencils, paint pens or whatever else takes their fancy.
