Summer School 2019
Everyday’s a school day here, except our school rolls to a slightly slower rhythm and lessons are to be learned both in the studio and out and about in the greatest classroom of all - the great outdoors. We’ll be exploring our creativity and learning new skills as we prepare to grow out this summer and make the most of our stunning Surrey Hills!
TUESDAYS 9:30 TO 13:00 @ THE PRIORY FARM ESTATE / Starts Tuesday 30th July 2019
This season we are delighted to be joining forces with The Salt Box for a series of youth and family workshops where the beautiful woodland at the Priory Farm Estate will inspire some wild creative adventures! Let the world become our classroom and let nature provide the tools as we re-wild our inner child this summer.
WEDNESDAYS 10:00 TO 13:00 / LEITH HILL PLACE / Starts Wednesday 24th July 2019
Over my years teaching in schools and in the past few years teaching a regular sketch class for adults I’ve built up quite the technical toolkit of clever tricks to make drawing from observation feel easy and breezy. This summer I’m taking some of my best technical masterclasses outdoors into the ‘real world’ where we can put some of these tricks to the test, whilst getting a blast of fresh air and inspiration at the magical Leith Hill Place!
THURSDAY 22ND AUGUST / CERAMIC CREATURES 6+ AND FAMILY PINCH POTS / @ SURREY ART SCHOOL
Clay is the perfect medium for both kids and grown ups to slow down a little and tune into the mindful process of making. Come and make together with our Family Pinch Pots workshop or drop and go and let them grow on their own with our Woodland Creatures 7+ workshop perfect for the budding artist who wants to create their own imaginary world!
THURSDAY 8TH AUGUST 2019/ 10:30 TO 1:00 PM / @ SURREY ART SCHOOL
Calligraphy is a really useful skill for budding artists and can be used to embellish sketchbook pages for GCSE and A level or just as a way to switch off and tune in to something that doesn't involve a screen - so this season we are offering an extra special youth and family calligraphy workshop to get our young artists writing beautifully!
You can either drop & go or stay & grow together on these family Calligraphy workshops!
THURSDAY 15TH AUGUST 2019 / @ SURREY ART SCHOOL
Lets get analog. In an increasingly digital age of screens and fast-communication this workshop will keep your young artists tethered to the present moment for just a few hours as they are challenged to use their hands and minds to weave a small textile artwork from scratch. They can throw in a bit of heart in too if they’re in the mood…Practical, tactile, fun and thoroughly enjoyable.
