Leading Online Camps for Kids
This course will look at the use of colouring pencils in art. We will begin by looking at how we can blend colours smoothly and layer colour on top of colour to create different effects. We will then look at how we use colour to create shading and how to highlight areas of light. Following this, we will look at creating realistic fruit and eyes using colour pencils before moving onto animals. In our animals lesson, we will look at how to create the look of fur. Pupils will then use these techniques to create a final piece of their choice.
Materials: Pupils will need a variety of colour pencils (the more shades of colours the better) and some thick but smooth paper is recommended (Bristol is the best) however, it is not essential.
Our Colouring Pencils Camp will take place daily at the following schedule:
09:00- 10:00 am(UK time) 8th - 12th August
Should the course not meet the minimum student number requirements, we will contact you within 72 hours of the start of the course with a full refund.
