This 4 day course over February half term offers children a fun, playful and creative environment to express themselves.
Using a range of techniques and processes to create their own artworks guided by artists, Ewelina Bartkowska and Amy Leung.
The course, for juniors (8-11years), will be based in our Ceramics & Drawing Studios and will explore a range of media from ceramics, drawing, painting and sculpture.
Playscapes of the Future led by Amy Leung will explore designing and making the playful spaces we’d like to experience in the future. Taking cue from the current exhibitions and how interior spaces might evoke certain feelings and memories; students will use drawing, 3D construction and experimental model making processes to create our own exciting built environments. We’ll consider what the future might need, what play means to us and which colours, textures and forms bring us joy.
Using a range of materials such as cardboard, fabric, paint, light and found objects, the course will include moments of collaborative play, large and smaller scale making. We’ll look at how artists and architects have enlivened spaces in imaginative ways and at the end of the course, we’ll celebrate our shared playscapes of the future.
Ceramics led by Ewelina Bartkowska will guide students through ceramics techniques such as handbuilding, using slip, sgraffito, using moulds, ceramic mono-printing and underglazing to create unqiue ceramic objects and sculptures that we will be fired in Camden Art Centre’s kiln for students to take home.
The course will culminate in an exhibition on the final day of the young artists’ work created through the week in our studios.
