Description

Small Art Adventures with Sophie Bishop
For ages 5-7 years

Saturdays >
10:00am – 11:30am

2:00pm – 3:30pm

Term 2 | 12 May – 16 June

For this term, each class will focus on activities inspired by our favourite art idols. By referencing the artworks of a selection of prolific and influential artists from a variety of eras throughout history we can experience exciting and unusual processes and approaches to colour, texture and form. Students are encouraged to research the themes and artists of each week to begin to be inspired by their work.

12 May:
Yayoi Kusama
Today will be all about pumpkins and polka dots! We will be exploring the work of Japanese artist Yayoi Kasuma, who is best known for her use of polka dots and organic forms. Create your own paper pulp sculpture that we will decorate with Kusama-inspired details.

19 May:
Andy Warhol
Turn yourself into a Pop Art self-portrait in the style of Andy Warhol! This lesson we will use bright colours and repeat printing to become a Warhol Pop Art icon.

26 May:
Jean-Michel Basquiat
Create your own cityscape in the style of New York’s notorious outsider-artist Jean-Michel Basquiat. By incorporating motifs like Basquiat’s three-prong crown and layering transparent colours and linear lines we can establish a Basquiat-inspired work of art.

2 June:
Georgia O’Keeffe
Experience abstract painting by taking a step into Georgia O’Keeffe’s amazing desert skull and flower artworks! Today’s class will be about introducing abstract and landscape painting and its applications.

9 June:
Henri Matisse
This adventure will be all about collage! Henri Matisse uses positive and negative shapes and colour theory to create beautiful paper collages that will act as the inspiration for own paper constructions.

16 June:
Frida Kahlo
Today will be all about YOU! Just like Frida Kahlo, you will be your own inspirational muse. Using some of Kahlo’s Mexican mural paintings and exotic flowers and birds we will create a mural and crown that represents you.
