Join NurtureStore’s Family Art Club
Come and join NurtureStore’s free Family Art Club and each month you will recieve:
:: an lesson on famous and world art, selected to showcase the theme of the month and inspire you to create your own works. This is a great way to build your knowledge of the history of art, art styles and design themes, world culture, geography, history, and social studies.
:: an introduction to different art techniques and materials. I always choose materials that are easily available and affordable (our real-life club, like many, has a tiny budget!) and you’ll likely have most of them already in your art supplies. We’ll cover a wide range of different techniques including painting, drawing, and sculpture.
:: an invitation to give art a try yourself. I’ll show you how you can use the materials in response to the theme and famous works, and then you can enjoy exploring for yourself.
In January’s Family Art Club :: Winter Skies
In January’s Family Art Club we are looking at winter skies and the skeleton shapes that trees make.
This workshop is great to combine with a nature walk, or you can stay home and simply use the materials I’ll give you for inspiration.
I ran this workshop with children aged from 5 to adults, and we spent about one and half hours.
We begin by looking at famous art to set the mood for our workshop and for inspiration.
Then I introduce the materials available and how each can be used: oil pastels and watercolour paints, sketching with pens, papercuts, and cutouts collage.
There are four different projects suggested – you can pick one or try as many as you like. You can work on a large piece of paper / card, or use smaller pieces of card which you can combine in a zig-zag book to make a Winter Skies album
Just pop your email address in the box below and I will send you your first instalment. It’s free! This will give you instant access to this month’s workshop, and I’ll also send you a few extra printables and freebies to give you a taste of the other art resources you can find on NurtureStore.
