Are you a teacher, parent, grandparent or caregiver? This workshop is for you. Learn innovative mixed media painting techniques to entertain and inspire children in class and during the school holidays. 

In the words of the great Picasso, "Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once they grow up." Many children don't grow into creativity, they grow out of it because they are taught to follow the rules which narrows their thinking. Barriers to creative thinking surround children from an early age. Their inherent creativity is suppressed when adults instruct them to do something in a particular way, find the right answer, be logical and avoid mistakes.

It's no wonder most of us grow up thinking we're not creative. 

In this workshop Wendy will demonstrate simple, effective art techniques using everyday materials that can be taught at school and at home to help kids get past the creative slump and do inspired, creative work. A qualified school art teacher by profession, Wendy is well versed in teaching art to kids and shares tips for unleashing their creativity and passion for art. 

All art materials provided. Adult class only.
