London Borough of Southwark
On Friday I taught a one day workshop for 6 -14 year olds at CGP Gallery.
The theme was ‘Urban Wildlife’ – I started by getting the children to draw their school playground in fine-line pens, then make animals/creatures out of coloured paper and magazine imagery which they imagine visit their school during the School holidays and what they might get up to
Tea parties for foxes and squirrels came to mind…
Yes this was my version
This workshop planning is hard work 😉 ………..
This is one reason I love teaching children, they’re so creative and free!
Today I went to CGP Gallery (Canada water) to see the Urban Wildlife exhibition which consisted of works from Primary Schools in Southwark on the theme of inner-city wildlife which children would see in and around their schools:
I found this especially inspirational as on Friday 21st February I will be teaching ‘Urban Wildlife’ drawing classes for 6-14 year olds in the gallery.
The workshops run from 10.30-12.30 and 1-3pm on Friday 21st January or Wednesday 19th with Artist Claire Blundell Jones and are for anyone aged between 6 and 14 years, best of all they are completely free! no need to book just arrive promptly….
Here are a few of my favourites from Southwark Primary schools:
