Children’s Art Course Wednesday Afternoons: 5-8yrs

October 18, 2023 @ 3:45 pm - November 28, 2023 @ 5:00 pm

ART FACE-OFF

Portraying the human face has captivated artists throughout the ages. Experienced visual artist, Kristine Ballard, is ready to show your child that everyone can create a portrait of a person artistically if they are shown how.

She will show your kids what to look for and different ways to render what they see in a variety of mediums – pencil, paint, clay and collage. Your young artists will learn different artistic ways other master artists in history have interpreted a face too. Support your child’s artistic growth and boost their creative confidence in these fun and educational classes.

No skills required, just enthusiasm and a love for creativity.
