Christmas Holiday Art Camp 2021
Dates: Thursday 16th December – Wednesday 22nd December 2021
Time: 10am-12noon or 1pm-3pm
Ages: 4 to 16
Venue: Kite Studios
Classes at Kite Studios focus on teaching our students the skill of creating treasure from materials we tend to discard. Never is this more relevant than in the build up to Christmas! How can we live more sustainably if we don’t learn creativity, flexibility and problem solving from a young age?
By introducing students to a variety of techniques ranging from etching to sculptural construction to drawing from life we teach students to see the treasure in everything around them and create wonderful, sustainable gifts just in time for Christmas.
Each class at Kite introduces the work of a famous artist whose work inspires the project we undertake. We use this as a starting point for the class’ project. Our key aim is for students to feel empowered by their ability to experiment freely with materials, solve problems and reflect on the work they make.
