Klimt Tree of Life Painting for Children (morning workshop)

  • Yardley Arts, The Old School Hall The Square Northampton, England, NN7 United Kingdom (map)

An opportunity for your child/ren to create a beautiful painting at our forthcoming workshop with Emma Lindsay. Inspired by the work of Austrian painter Gustav Klimt, students will create a Tree of Life painting on brown paper.

We will use a variety of materials including paint, gold leaf, oil pastel and pens. Looking at Klimt's use of colour, pattern, movement and symbolism in his art, we will create our own vibrant, dynamic and colourful artwork.

Perfect for 7-12 year olds with a keen imagination or creative streak.

All materials are provided, just bring an apron/old shirt for your child/ren.

Cold drinks and biscuits are available. Please bring anything else your child might require, if needed for special diet or medical reasons.

£16 per child. Suitable for ages 7-12. Spaces limited to 12.
