Young Creatives Mixed Media: A Colourful Journey Workshop - Ages 9-15

Designed for those who love working with colour and using colour in general and enjoy imaginative play and creating. Colour has a wonderful way of allowing us to not only express ourselves in our day to day life but also enables us to be creative and inventive in so many different ways, from the way we dress to the way we decorate our living space, and the way we craft and create in art.

In this workshop you will gain an understanding of how using colour can work for you in your artistic creations and crafting projects. There are benefits of using colour in the art to positively stimulate and enhance the creative flow without the need for verbal expression. Practical and experiential hands-on activity, creating your own creative personalised canvas collage-artwork using fun creative mixed media techniques. A great way to experiment with techniques & different art media. No artistic skills or ability is required.
