Every week we will start with some lively warm up exercises such as one minute portraits, blind drawing and speedy surreal collages before starting our first activity. This term, for example, we will be making Roy Liechtenstein portraits using his classic Benday Dot style, magical watercolour moons and print making using the kente cloth method. I believe in providing children with high quality art materials. This is included in the cost of the session. The Pop Dot Art Chalet has it's own garden with a picturesque weeping willow cascading onto the grass. We will be working outside where possible and including observations of nature in our work.

About your Mentor

About your Mentor

Poppy

I have been studying art for many years in Brighton where I completed my Art Foundation diploma with a distinction grade at Greater Brighton Metropolitan College and more recently my degree in Textiles at the University of Brighton. I grew up in Forest Row and have spent most of my childhood at Michael Hall School. I adore making art with my two children and the joy it gives them to be creating something wonderful is very special to me. In my spare time I enjoy travelling to new places, visiting museums and art galleries as well as participating in workshops and learning new skills. I am a keen amateur photographer and currently work with brands to create lifestyle content on my instagram @popdotpoppy. I am passionate about self development and I love to keep healthy and fit with yoga, healthy mindful eating and sustainable living with a bit of cake thrown in for good measure :-)

Learning aims

To be able to discuss impressions of artists work in group games.

Strengths to develop

We will be using a vast variety of brushes to paint with as well as pencils, pens and other mark making materials. Fine motor skills will be the key here as we learn how varying pressures on the paper or ground we are using effect the marks we create. Experimenting with blind and partial peak drawing where the strength of the mind comes into play. Using our hands as mark making tools.
