‘What a fantastic display of colour! Just wanted to say thank you to you from Zoe W – she had a fab time at the Mandala workshop and each day when she came home, she was buzzing with excitement about what she’d learned and what she’d produced that day – so thank you.’ Autumn Art Workshops 2014 – Ali W.
For ten young artists aged 5 – 11 yrs, the first two days of the half term holidays were filled with rich colours, leaf prints and painterly textures! The children painted beautiful circles of vibrant colour using acrylic paint on canvas! We took our breaks in the crisp Autumnal surroundings of Manor House School in Ashby ! The grounds are filled with leaves from the huge trees that line the school field! Just perfect for collecting and printing with !
The children loved mixing up shades of Autumn on their paint pallets and they achieved some simply stunning leaf prints made from hand cut polystyrene blocks! We built up layers and layers of leaves as if they had fallen to the ground in circular patterns! I am so proud of my young artists once again as their finished canvases are really something to behold, each one unique and individual and together they would light up any gallery wall!
