A fun week using different media to create stunning art.


This Art of Mine are running a different workshop for children each week throughout the summer holiday. Week four is all about working with mixed media.

Get ready to upgrade your artistic skills to another level. This week your child will be using glazes, acrylics, string, clay, inks, pencils and much more to create amazing pieces of artwork. 

Book the whole week or individual days, see below:

Mon- Ice Cream in Acrylics and Clay

 Your child will enjoy this yummy day of art. During this workshop they will create a striking ice cream canvas painting using blending and shading techniques. They will also be creating a clay ice cream sculpture, learning new techniques and adding on patterns using special tools. 

Tues- Seaside String Art

String art is currently huge in the US and is set to make waves over here too. During this workshop children will learn this unusual technique whilst making a fantastic seahorse canvas. There will be plenty of shells for them to use to add to the seaside effect. In the afternoon they will be designing their own seahorse themed plate, using a variety of ceramic painting techniques.

Wed- A Clay Tic-Tac-Toe Project 

Enjoy two projects that celebrate the seaside. Children will learn lots of new ceramic techniques whilst painting their very own colourful tic-tac-toe set. They will also be taught how to design and make their own unique counters out of clay using special clay tools. In the afternoon they will paint an ice-cream cone pot which can be decorated according to your child's favourite flavour.
