Saturday, January 30th – Saturday March 20th  (8 weeks)

* 10am-12pm * Member – $50 per child* Non-member – $60 per child * Ages 5-12 *Materials Included *

Once students are taught a little about colour theory and composition, they will be free to express themselves more creatively through the use of different paint techniques (watercolour, acrylic, ink). Over the course of 8 weeks, we will cover various painting techniques (pointilism, printmaking, as well as traditional forms of painting) and subject matter while using artworks found within the gallery as references (Alan Syliboy and Christopher Pratt).
Taught by Kimberley Herron
