Out of this World
Out of this World takes children on a cosmic journey as they gain visual arts knowledge and skills leading to a professionally exhibited showcase of their final artwork to friends and family.
Over six weeks, children work with practicing artists from Paintbox and their class teacher to explore a range of art materials and techniques which build confidence and pride in their creative achievements.
Beginning with a Watts Gallery visit, children learn about George Watts and how space and the planets influenced his work. Workshops then develop skills in drawing, composition, collage, watercolour painting and creating 3D space scenes. A final framed space artwork is then exhibited at schools in a private view with friends and family.
