Ahoy there!  These workshops launch a crew of emerging artists on an expedition under the sea.  While exploring the watery world beneath the waves, we will meet and make the creatures that live there through drawing, painting, printmaking and sculpture.  Students will experiment with the following materials: clay, pencils, charcoal, crayon, poster paints, coloured paper, pipe cleaners, lollypop sticks and pastels.  We will interact with the gallery space looking at the current exhibition for inspiration and discussion.  There will be plenty of chill activities and story telling to add to our underwater experience.  Prepare to dive in!
