The creative act is fundamental in providing an opportunity for children to connect with their innate creativity whilst having fun! Join artist and arts educator Eleanor Amiradaki to explore a range of techniques/materials focusing on building foundational skills whilst harnessing their own unique creative expression. Watercolour, ink, pencil, charcoal, clay and pastels will be among the materials used to build unique compositions. We will weave into our work the seasons, nature, dreams and story as we draw inspiration from life & imagination.
