Children's Workshop overview

Children are known for their pure and honest creativity. Allowing a child to follow his or her creative instincts can bring forth the most magical results. Now your child has the opportunity to experience the wonder of painting outdoors.  For many young children this will be their first time painting outside. They will be encouraged to paint what they see around them, while most importantly, being given the freedom to follow their own instincts and vision.

The aim of these classes is to tap in to your child's creativity, develop their sense of observation and allow them to experience the joy of plein air painting in a fun and supportive environment.

During this session tutor Danielle will paint along on her own canvas, showing and describing
how to draw up the composition, color mixing, as well as how to use all the materials in this fun and informative class.

This is a special opportunity for your child to experience a level of painting that they will not be taught in most junior or high schools. That said, children receive one on one assistance, suited to their individual age and comprehension- and every child finishes the day with a completed 16 x 20 inch canvas to take home with them, cord attached and ready to hang on their wall.

  Cost: $109 per child (and $109 per parent who participates with their children)
                   *Includes use of ALL material required such as paints, brushes,
                    easel and stretched canvas. 
                    Class numbers: are limited to a total of 8 participants, so as
                    to provide individual attention to each student.
