“Fantastic Funky Fish”
From Klee to Clay
Artshack Kids! returns this February half term with a “Fantastic Funky Fish” ceramics workshop for children aged 7 – 13 years. Split into two sessions to allow the clay to be fired/dried, the workshops will be run on Tuesday 18th February and Sunday March 1st . There will be a session in the morning 10-12 and the afternoon 1-3 on both days.
Tying in with the National Curriculum, the Tuesday sessions will discuss and look at examples of the huge diversity of different fish, their environments and the evolutionary adaptations fish have developed for survival in their natural habitats.
Inspired by the paintings by Paul Klee, children will design their own imaginary “Fantastic Funky Fish” on paper noting any adaptations it may have (including choice of colours) for the sort of environment it would live in.
After a break with healthy option refreshments, the children will reproduce their designs in clay.
On the second day the “Fantastic Funky Fish” will be ready to paint working from the original designs.
Healthy refreshments are included for the children. All participants will need to be accompanied by an adult for the entirety of each session. Tea, coffee and cake will be available for adults for a voluntary contribution / free of charge.
Cost upfront for both workshops £15
