My Many Coloured Days

Monday 18th February, 1.30pm - 3.30pm, ages 3-5, £20.

Looking at this lesser known of Dr Seuss books, we will explore colour mixing and how it can convey different moods. We will learn about simultaneous contrast- how one colour looks when placed next to another and, with reference to the animals in the book, we will also look at textures. The media we will use are paint, collage and coloured acetates.

Unless

Monday 18th February, 9.15am - 3.45pm, ages 9-14, £50.

In Dr Seuss’s The Lorax the planet is doomed to a catastrophic fate where no trees survive and the air is too polluted to breathe. It seems that nothing can be done… unless! Artists and writers offer us hope. In this one day project we will look at the art of protest from artists like Yoko Ono and Bob and Roberta Smith, musicians and graffiti artists. What will your protest be about? What matters to you? Come and make your own protest art about something you care about. It could be a banner, badge, graffiti art or something new. We will have an exciting and empowering day investigating protest art and how to get your message across.

GCSE Art

The Lorax

Tuesday 19th February, 9.15am - 3.45pm, ages 5-11, £50.

During the workshop, you will create your own forest pictures to feature the ‘Truffula trees’ and the ‘brown bar-ba-loots’ who live in the forest. Taking inspiration from the illustrations in Dr Seuss books, forest pictures, leaves and branches, you will draw, paint and use collage to create and plant your very own forests. Spend some time inventing creatures including birds, fish and your own version of Bar-ba-lots or other endangered species using collaged pictures and illustrate these creatures in personal sketch books. In ‘the Lorax’, the ‘Once-ler’ ruins the environment by chopping down and using the silky clusters on the Truffula trees to create textile ‘Thneeds’. Bring in an old jumper to create accessories including arm warmers, scarves, pin on brooches, scarves, hats (for the Cat in the hat) or leg warmers!
