Trial Sessions Of Thursday Art Club: Interactive, Live & Online

Option:

BOOK TWO TRIAL SESSIONS: If your child has never attended a live online art workshop with me before, then book two taster trial sessions, before you fully commit to the term!

Alternatively you can book the remaining sessions of the current term of Online After School Art Club

LIVE, interactive online weekly art inspiration workshops - especially designed for children!

Delivered and created by the Dot Kids Founder, Julie Bevan.

ALL ABILITIES WELCOME!
  • These sessions are not centred around 'talent',
  • We focus on encouraging creative confidence.
  • Developing creative freedom. 
  • Enhancing self-expression, understanding & discussion.
  • Inspiration from amazing artists and art history. 
  • And a knowledge that we are all unique and capable of creativity.
  • The impact on other areas of life is incredible too!

WHAT TO EXPECT:
  • Your child will discover inspirational artists, often using them as inspiration for their own creativity. 
  • Your child will learn that "mistakes" within creativity are just a learning opportunity.
  • We will support one another to encourage artistic freedom and confidence. 
  • Your child will experiment with various artistic techniques, eg. paint, collage and drawing.

  • Your child will develop self-expression, through creativity and discussion.

  • Your child will increase their ability to engage and discuss.

I will encourage your child to embrace self-expression in art; giving each child the creative confidence and freedom to create their own unique art. 

Each child will gain confidence in self-expression, discussion and creativity.

Limited numbers attend, to allow full interaction, discussion and sharing of art work if the children wish to.

DISCUSSION & FEEDBACK

During the session there will be plenty of opportunity for each child to ask questions, comment, discuss & show their art, if they wish to.

There is no pressure to do this though. I recognise that not all children are comfortable doing so. If your child prefers to just watch and create that is fine. 

The sessions are very inclusive and do not centre on perfection and 'copying a masterpiece' but on self-expression, understanding and art appreciation.

Therefore, I often find that children who are very shy at the beginning, find the confidence to speak after just one or two workshops, giving them extreme confidence. 

You & your child can also choose to disable the video camera, if your child would prefer not to be visible on the zoom call.


EQUIPMENT NEEDED: 
I always keep equipment to a minimum, so I'm sure you will have everything you need at home, all that is required are;
    • some sheets of plain paper. 
    • a pencil.
    • colouring pencils, paints, pens or pastels or crayons.
  • I will notify everyone the week before term starts with what is needed for each week.

ZOOM LINKS & PASSWORDS
Once you have booked, an email will be sent to you with the zoom instructions & links for the full term. Please check spam folders for this email. If you are unable to locate please contact me.
