Oil Painting for Kids

with Carol Ligon

OCTOBER WORKSHOPAfter School
Friday, October 6, 3:30 - 5:30 pm


Pop Art and Dynamic Designs of Color - Students create dynamic designs of color using one or more of the following:


  1. Rectangular shapes giving the painting organization
  2. Triangular shapes and or circles add a sense of movement
  3. Clustering shapes (grouping together in clusters) outline an association of colors


Expressive fun!

These one-day workshops offer artistic expression, where kids develop an awareness of the art elements — Line, Shape, Form, Color, Texture, Space and Value.  The Oil Painting Workshop is intended to inspire kids to grab their toolboxes and get busy and paint.  As the students create art, they paint through a process, allowing their artistic expressions to display in a natural way.  These experiences will help to develop each child’s own emerging style of painting.


Class fee:  $45 per workshop, materials included
