Contemporary Art workshops for Kids and Teens: Drawing Faces
St Ives School of Painting run art workshops for local children aged 7 to 10 and teenagers aged 11 to 16. They run once a month on a Sunday in our art studios overlooking the beach.
These workshops give young people the experience of being young artists: – they get to work on easels, use the same high-quality materials as those on our adult courses, and are taught by experienced artist tutors in a working art studio.
The projects are called Kids Art Club and Porthmeor Art Collective. They are a brilliant way of injecting some creativity into their lives outside of school and for the teens, to meet like-minded young people. The sessions are £10 but we can offer limited FREE Scholarship places for those on low income. Please contact us for a Scholarship form to apply: [email protected]
Sunday 10th December: Drawing faces with Steven Buckler.
Do you find it difficult to draw people’s faces? Do you find yourself avoiding it? Learn from Steven Buckler whose background in animation and MA in illustration will help you tackle it.
Following Steven’s demonstrations, learn the right proportions of the face and then build features into it that you can shape to become individual. Let him guide you in helping the drawings become more 3D by adding shading and tone.
By the end of the session you will have some drawings you are pleased with. You’ll leave the session with a new way of approaching drawing that you can practice with any subject: observational drawing, illustration, cartoons and anime.
Times: Kids 10am-12pm and Teens 2pm-4pm.
