The next session I have coming up is inspired by the artwork of Dutch artist Piet Mondrian.
Mondrian was a member of an art movement in the Netherlands called De Stijl, which means "the style" in Dutch. Next Tuesday, the 25th of August at 11 am, I will be running another abstract landscape art project suitable for all ages. And any children younger than 6, will need some adult supervision. You will only be required to purchase one ticket per household and sales are currently open.
So what will your child learn in this session?
Your child will learn about the fascinating Dutch artist Piet Mondrian and how and why his art became so abstracted in his later career (he didn't always paint in squares). They will learn, through simple easy-to-do steps on how to create their own abstract landscape in rainbow colours. They will then be able to use this technique again with any other image of their choice. And lastly, they will leave the art session with a modern artwork that they can be proud of.
For this session you will need 6 different colours of the rainbow and a black in any drawing or painting medium of your choice. Two A4 sheets of white paper, some circle lids, like the ones used on milk bottles and spray polish and you will also need a ruler.
Tickets can be purchased from Eventbrite by following this link.
