Children's Drawing (8 - 11yrs)

with artist and tutor Grace Payne Kumar

  • Ended
  • 200 British pounds
  • Great King Street

Service Description

In this series of 12 Sunday morning classes, children will explore the theme of identity through different mediums each week. The aim of these workshops is to have a lot of fun, but also to come away at the end of the 12 weeks with a general impression of having experienced something 'a little more grown up'! The children will make self portraits in various different styles, as well as identifying aspects in their lives which give them their sense of self and place. For example one week they might be asked to bring in their favourite toy or object, another be set up with multiple mirrors for a portrait, or the next to dream of an imaginary pet. Grace has the right balance between being a calming influence but also where children really enjoy their time with her. Grace has extensive experience with children and working with children within charities. Grace is a classically trained painter having graduated from Charles Cecil Studios in Florence where she was also selected to teach. She was the winner of the Members Choice Award in the Scottish Portrait Awards 2019, and was commissioned to paint the Lord Clerk Justice of Scotland in 2021 which is hanging in Parliament Hall. Grace is currently in her final year studying English Literature at The University of Edinburgh.
