Children’s Workshop - Urban Landscapes
A Children’s Workshop inspired by the paintings of Jeffrey Smart
Two workshop times:
11am – 1pm – sold out
2pm – 4pm – sold out
Artist Sarah Metzner will begin with a group discussion of a few selected paintings by Jeffrey Smart, focusing on the artist’s choice of urban landscapes, symbolic references, colours, mood and the significance of the figures used in his paintings. A small selection of Smart’s paintings will be studied and referenced in the workshop. Each child is invited to choose one of Smart’s urban landscapes in order to study horizon lines, backgrounds and foregrounds so that they can create their own drawn and collaged urban landscapes. All materials are supplied and the workshop concludes with a discussion circle where individuals show their artworks and share their insights and feedback constructively together.
Age Group: 6 – 12 years old
