April 21 - Colour, Geometry and Pattern Collage! 

Inspired by Jessica Eaton's stunning large format photographs in our exhibition Fulhame's Map we will create images loaded with shape, pattern and colour. We will cut, collage and play with colourful geometric shapes to learn about pattern and repetition to create colourful images to take home!

April 28 - Maynard, Montage and the Portrait 

Artists speak in different ways and use many languages including photography. Hannah Maynard's (1834-1918) experimental self portraits in our exhibition Fulhame's Map will be the starting point for our photo projects. We too will experiment with photography to create our own innovative self portraits using props and montage to tell new and imaginative stories.

Do you have a LEAP card? Your child may be eligible for a bursary. Two LEAP spots are available each week; one per family. Each family is welcome to use up to 2 LEAP spots per month.

Maximum program enrollment is 12 students. All phone reservations must be paid prior to 5 pm the Friday before Saturday Studio. Walk-in payments are accepted until 9:15 am Saturday if space allows.
