1/2day course: Plucking Dazey’s - Camden Art Centre

Plucking Dazey’s led by Shane Keeling will introduce children (7-11years) and their adults to making together using plasticine.

Children and their adults will work together through the session to experiment, play and make with plasticine. Using creative making exercises, we will create a series of colourful, playful and unusual plasticine flowers. Through the session we will generate a boutique of all the flowers made together, flowers created will then be able to be taken home for display.

The course will inspire connections between art and material, whilst supporting important relationships to continue to grow through making together.

For families with children age 7-11 years, no previous experience necessary. Children must be accompanied by an adult for the full session. Please note a ticket includes admission for 1 adult and 1 child (between 7-11years).
