KS2 Visual Arts Course

View our January 2021 Virtual Art Exhibition

We are delighted to announce our new art course for budding artists!

We wanted our art provision to mirror our music education at Matrix, with a course which is progressive and structured, but also creative. After a careful search for teachers who could take on the 'Matrix approach', we are very happy to have found Victoria Furze and Adel Torok who have been working together to design this exciting new art opportunity.

Age Children aged 7 - 11 years (KS2)

Lessons Tuesdays 4:30 - 6pm, Wednesdays and Thursdays 4:15 – 5:45pm*

Adel and Victoria say: 

"Our aim is to inspire and enable creative children and young people to further their engagement with the arts.

The first term will focus primarily on drawing. We'll be developing your skills in technical drawing (learning about line, tone, texture), observational drawing and expressive drawing (interpreting music through mark making; expressing emotion). We'll be using a variety of media and techniques throughout the term, including graphite, ink, charcoal, pastel and crayon, starch painting, sgraffito and watercolour.

Each lesson will focus on developing key drawing skills, beginning with a warm up and then on to a project that may run over one or two sessions that challenges and inspires you to take risks and develop your artistic confidence.

You will work towards creating a sketchbook full of ideas that help to push you towards a greater understanding of drawing and open your eyes to the multiplicity of creative opportunities within the visual arts. 

We will focus on observational drawing moving from simple exercises towards more complex tasks, such as still life where we shall begin to look at composition. This is a course for budding artists!"
