What to expect
This is a formal drawing & painting course for children aged from 9-12yrs with a view to sitting an art entrance exam for schools, applying for a scholarship where a portfolio of art work must be submitted or if they want to have 3:1 lessons.
The course consists of drawing & painting, watercolours, acrylics, pencils & pastels will be explored.
We will look at drawing techniques: measuring for drawing accuracy, shading & composition. The course is taught in very small groups, one teacher to three students.
Over the years we have enjoyed excellent success rates with our students being offered art places at Holland Park School and City of London Girls & Northbridge House.
However, we cannot guarantee that your child will be offered an art place at your chosen school.
These courses are taught by Sarah Riddick BAHons, PGCE, Director of Mini Picassos.
Project this term:
We will look at the eccentric human form through the eyes of Niki De St Phalle. Sculptures to be made in aluminum chicken wire & plaster, completed with acrylic paints and varnishes.
Re - Opening Dates TBC
