Explore the way in which art can be used as a language of readable lines, shapes and forms. View art as a language that expresses feelings through colour, size, movement and materials, pure freedom of expression. Fine art disciplines examined include drawing, sculpture, painting, photography, printing, and mixing these mediums using authentic art materials as the catalyst for sustainable and engaging investigations into the artist’s chosen subject matters. This workshop aims to communicate the balance that is needed when providing visual art experiences; thinking about the image of the child, our roles as educators, relationships with families and the environment.
