Service Description

Join Kirstie Értz to make a portrait of your pet, whether this be your giant corn snake called Barry, your hamster called Tim or your cat called Jim! Kirstie will show the children famous painting of artists' pets through the ages, where children may draw inspiration of how they might want to paint their own pet. Please bring in an A4 photo of your chosen pet to class. Kirstie has a lot of experience mentoring many different children in after school clubs and art schools. Kirstie has studied Fine Art at undergraduate level as well as completing the drawing programme at the prestigious Florence Academy of Art. She is currently taking a break from her studies to focus more fully on developing her own artistic practice and focus on private commissions. So far she has completed her first artist residency at The Alchemy Experiment in Glasgow and is currently working toward her first solo show. All materials are provided by The Edinburgh Drawing School including all acrylic paint, coloured pencils, watercolours, collage materials.
