Easter Holiday Workshop
Design and decorate your own Art House - games room, art studio, garden room, it could become a fire station, superhero's lair or even your own future eco house. From designing the A2 size floor plan right through to creating our own wallpaper using printmaking and weaving to make furnishings. Over the three days children will have the opportunity to experiment with lots of different art and crafting skills including using a glue gun, sewing, paining and collage.
3 whole days to design and make the perfect Art House. Wallpaper, furniture, lighting, plants, people, pools...lots of creative freedom, problem solving skills and satisfaction!
The children plan, design, paint, print, build, model, stick, invent and create,
At the end of 3 days they have their own wooden house to take home and put in its pride of place.
All materials, including the house are included and the children can take their work home with them at the end of the week. Your child will need a packed lunch each day and clothes that they can get messy in.
Iguana Art offers children a huge range of activities & projects to choose from plus a wide variety of materials they can explore & experiment with!
Classes are a maximum of only 10 children, which means each child gets plenty of individual help & the teacher can demonstrate many different techniques.
Each child is encouraged to use their imagination & initiative The art teachers provide inspiration and ideas.
If children prefer to work independently, they have the space to do this. They can rest assured that the teacher is there if they change their mind or need some tips.
