Art Camp timings: 10:00 am to 4:00 pm

Location: Surrey Hills Yurts, Logmore Lane, Dorking, RH4 3JN
Theme: Alternative portraiture
The day will begin with a gathering by the fire pit, where we will spend a little time getting to know the group and talking through our plan for the day.
We'll then be creating on our own tree-spirits - moulding simple portraits with mud and clay that show a connection to the natural landscape - adding features with moss, leaves, whatever we can gather.
After a short break we'll embark on creating our own forest spirit portraits, using photography and our natural surroundings to style a fine art portrait that connects us to the seasonal landscape and explores belief systems from a range of cultures.
Next is camouflage Photography - using face-paints, mud and paint to create portraits that blend in to the woodland. Sort of like a where's wally - except the students become wally!
After a short break for lunch round the fire we'll then be working from our photographic portraits to create a nature spirit self-portrait incorporating technical drawing, watercolour pencils, paints and fine-liner pens.
Expect a busy, creative and imaginative day with plenty of opportunities for invention, discovery and honing technical skill both though hand-making and creative photography techniques!
It is advised that your child brings along a point and shoot camera or phone. There is very limited data signal at Surrey Hills Yurts so we will ONLY be using technology for creative endeavours during the session!
