Children’s Workshop: Playful Painting (7-11yrs)


[ Children )

This event has passed.

Inspired by Damien Hurst’s spin painting in the Model Art Gallery, we will start by creating an explosive painting full of colour and movement. From here we will continue to explore experimental painting methods, like making your own painting tools, soak and stain and gestural mark making. At the end of the workshop each child will leave with a portfolio of paintings.

We will provide all required materials.

Class has a maximum capacity of 10.

The workshop will be lead by Charlotte Cranidge.

Charlotte regularly creates and delivers a range of arts projects for people of all ages and abilities that experiment with creative processes and encourage social interaction. She specialises in creating conversational sessions, delivering creative practical workshops and participatory projects. Her focus is to deliver programmes and events that focus storytelling, playfulness, inquisitiveness and experimentation – asking participants to engage in multiple processes to create their own works.

Presently, Charlotte’s practice focuses more on a broader range of materials and working collaboratively with communities. Focusing more on the outcomes that emerge from basic materials, adopting non-conventional treatments of materials and aesthetic potential. However, the roots of her practice lie in painting and printmaking – specialisms she frequently returns too.
