Arts Lab’s ‘Great Sketchbook Project’ for kids (9-13yrs) continues with the wonderful Sophy D’Angelo.

Starting Monday 4th January at 4pm, this fabulous 6 week online course is designed to keep your kids happy, connected and creative …. exploring drawing and painting in all its forms!

Experimenting with a range of materials, we will combine media to get fantastic visual results. Techniques include: book making, wax relief, charcoal smudging, collage, mark making, stencils, mono prints and scraper board. Please have the materials list ready to fully enjoy the sessions.

Themes can be decided by the group in the first session. Sophy looks forward to having fun making some lovely art together.

Materials required at home: paper to make a book or a ready made sketchbook, pens including fine liners & marker pens, HB & colour pencils, crayons, sharpener, rubber, ruler, ready mix paint, paint brushes (small & medium size), masking tape or sellotape, glue sticks, PVA glue, scissors

Ideal Extras: chalk or oil pastels, inks, watercolour set, charcoal, cardboard (e.g. recycled cereal boxes)
