Spring workshop: Creating still life

My aim with this workshop is to develop children’s appreciation of how a work of still life takes shape, and what it can express.

We will explore the different ways in which objects reflect light depending on their shape and what they are made of, how the use of colour can express the latter, and other tricks of the trade used to bring a still life…to life! We will look at the works of Morandi, Cézanne and Zurbarán for inspiration, and we will compose a still life together.

The workshop will be for children aged 5 to 12. Your child will have plenty of time to draw, and each exercise will be adapted to your child’s age and level.

Classes are for a maximum of five children only, so if you would like to book a place, do let me know as soon as possible.

When: Saturday 28th March or Sunday 19th April
Time: 1.30 – 3.00 pm or 3.15 pm – 4.45 pm
Where: Putney
