Celebrating some of the best illustrators and cartoonists at This Art of Mine workshop.


This Art of Mine are running a different workshop for children each week throughout the summer holiday. Week five is all about illustration.

This is a truly lovely week where your child will be immersed into the styles of different illustrators including Tony Ross, Eric Carle and Dr Seuss. As well as emulating their styles, the children will be encouraged to start thinking about their own style too. During the week they will be experimenting with different artistic mediums including watercolours, acrylics and clay. 

You can book the whole week or just individual days, see below:

Mon- Celebrating Dr. Seuss

Explore the weird and wonderful world of Dr. Seuss. Children will be shown how to capture his distinctive style as well as celebrating his well known characters. They will also have a chance to create your own character and make up your own rhyme to go along with your character too!

Tues- College Inspired by Eric Carle

In this unique workshop your child will be exploring art inspired by the very talented Eric Carle. They will be designing and creating their own canvas painting using a wonderful collage technique with diverse textures and colours. In the afternoon they will get the chance to paint a plate using a paper printing technique.

Wed- Creating Animal Characters

Enjoy learning how to create animal characters inspired by the work of Tony Ross. Children will be looking at how art and words work together by creating a story with a central character, all of which will be brought to life through illustration. During this workshop the focus will be on details and looking at ways to convey expressions, personality and mood. 

Thurs: A Day of Modern Cartooning

This is a perfect introduction into cartoon drawing. This Art of Mine will take your child through each step of how to create characters so they can keep practicing and improving at home. Throughout the day there will be pen, inks and acrylics to create a final canvas piece. 

Fri- Making Clay Models and Sets

During this workshop, your child will be making their own character designs as well as creating a backdrop for them using wood and acrylics. Taking inspiration from the amazing illustrators around the world they will be working hard to make their character's personality come to life through different mediums.
