Britto-Inspired Puppy Painting School Holiday Workshop Monday 22nd April

April 22 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am

Get ready to infuse your creativity with the vibrant inspiration of Brazilian artist Romero Britto. In this class, participants will create a character painting by merging the dynamic mediums of watercolour and oil pastels to create lively animal masterpieces. Students will learn illustration skills to draw their furry character with oil pastels, then fill them with vivid watercolour hues to capture Britto’s signature style. They will dive into layering techniques to add depth to their artwork, while utilising oil pastels for intricate details that bring their puppy to life in true Britto fashion.


Guided by an enthusiastic artist, your child will delve into creative exploration, nurturing their imagination, fostering self-expression, and honing their individual artistic vision. Through hands-on activities, audio-visual teaching resources and guided instruction, they will develop essential skills for creative thinking. This interactive workshop provides a stimulating social environment, encouraging collaboration and connection among young artists.

Engaging in artistic endeavours has been shown to have numerous positive effects on children’s mental and emotional well-being, including stress reduction, enhanced self-esteem, and a profound sense of achievement.

Dynamic Medium Fusion: Explore the unique combination of watercolour and oil pastels to create eye-catching characters that exude energy and liveliness.

Drawing skills: Learn how to draw with oil pastels to outline your characters with confidence, emphasising their features with bold, expressive lines.

Vivid Watercolour Fills: Dive into a world of vibrant colour as you fill your characters with rich, dynamic watercolour washes, inspired by Britto’s iconic palette.
