Each day, children will learn about a different artist and then create a masterpiece in that artists style. We are very excited to announce that the first 3 artists we will we learning about are: Vincent Van Gogh, Frida Kahlo, Pablo Picasso.

The art that the children will learn about and create: 

Vincent Van Gogh

Come and learn about this classic, misunderstood, artistic, genius. We will talk about Van Gogh’s artistic and personal journey. Let’s see what made him a pioneer of his craft! Kids will practice impressionist techniques and discuss basics in colour theory.

Frida Kahlo

We will learn what makes Kahlo’s portraits unique and why she is an influential figure in art history. Kids will discuss symbolism and how to convey and interpret meanings in our art.

Pablo Picasso

Picasso is co-credited with the founding of the cubist movement and with using collage in fine art. We will discuss and learn about Picasso’s long and ever-changing journey in his creative adventures. By learning about Picasso’s search for his artistic style, children will explore how people can grow, change, and evolve in our own lives and creative journeys.
