Drawing Workshops for school aged kids 5 & UP!
Practical & creative drawing workshops for school aged kids, 5 years and over, run by Angela & Robyn - practicing artists and art educators.
Kids are taught the basics of drawing. We focus on mark making techniques using a range of drawing mediums and encourage kids to refine their skills in observation.
We believe, giving kids access to Workshops in a creative space that focuses on process and experimentation, will help them gain the knowledge, experience and skills to explore their own visual expression.
Workshops take place at the Addison Road Community Centre (ARCCO), Marrickville, Sydney's Inner West, providing a safe, creative environment.
- places are limited to small groups
- workshops cater for different ages and capabilities
- kids are taught drawing & mark making techniques using a range of mediums
About Angela & Robyn:
As Fine Arts graduates, Art Educators, and mothers, we want to provide an exciting and innovative artistic drawing programme for kids run through a series of practical & creative workshops. We share the belief that by bringing kids into a creative space and treating them as art students, we are providing them a unique learning experience and environment to explore.
After teaching drawing to Adults for many years, Angela now combines her experience as an arts educator (& furniture collector & restorer) to provide a wealth of creatively hands-on (sometimes beautifully messy) methodologies to drawing. Angela has a particular eye for vintage teaching charts & medical props which when used to decorate the gallery space combine to both fascinate and educate kids each holidays. With two young sons there isn’t much she doesn’t know about dinosaurs.
As an experienced workshop facilitator and arts educator Robyn draws on her Visual Arts and Science background to provide kids with practical (& often scientifically curious) approaches to drawing. A love of botanical & nature drawing, combined with bowerbird leanings, sees the gallery space Drawn to Seeing inhabit each holidays turn into a mini Natural History Museum. Due to her most recent drawing project she is also becoming a bit of a feather collector & bird spotter (also useful for the odd drawing of a dinosaur)!
