Holiday Art workshop – Gallery Walk

Event – Four day Gallery Walk

Location – Turnham Green Tube Station, Chiswick.

Dates – 16th – 19th December, 2019

Time – 9am – 3pm

Price – £45.00 per day, £170.00 for 4 days, Lunch and Sketch book included.

After very successful previous workshops, at the Scout Hut, Chiswick, W4/W3, I am delighted to offer this gallery walk is for 6 years plus during the December Christmas break. It will be running for 4 days, starting 16th December. 9am – 3pm, leaving from Turnham Green Tube station and collecting from the same location.

Both me (Celia Pickering) and Miss Gilby are CRB CHECKED, I have insurance to cover my art classes, clubs and workshops including outings, and we both have many years experience with teaching and childcare. Myself a Childminder and art teacher and Miss Gilby an early years teacher and head of department for over 10 years.

Each day has been planned and safeguarding checks have been done for each journey and location. All galleries have been informed on our arrival days and lunchrooms or lockers have been booked when possible. I will provide lunch, avoiding any allergies. A sandwich, crisps, fruit and seeded bar. The children will receive a sketchbook. Additional snacks and water will need to be provided by parents.

Children will need warm and waterproof clothes as we hope to spend time outside sketching some of London’s beautiful buildings, including Natural History Museum and St Pauls (weather depending).

Each child will be provided with high vis over vests. I will also provide all materials needed each day.

Once I have all booking I will create a WhatsApp group for all parents. This group will allow all information and photography to be shared and for us to be in contact during the days when necessary.

Spending money for children needs to be limited and each child needs to be responsible for their own purses, including checking change when buying from the gifts shops. I am aware children could buy some lovely Christmas gifts for family members, so parents could provide the children with a name to by for? I will not allow children to stop in cafés or shops to buy food and drinks.

I invite all children who will love to spend their time drawing, colouring, painting and being creative. The gallery walk is designed for all children who want to learn about art and experience our amazing London Galleries. I encourage a relaxed and enjoyable attitude to art, allowing children to learn new and wonderful ways to express themselves through art and extending their knowledge about the world around them. Learning through art can build confidence and a positive outlook to learning.

Choose either 1, 2, 3 or 4 day’s, giving the children a chance to meet new friends, use their natural talents, have time to reflect (mindfulness) and have time to create some wonderful pieces of art work in their sketch books. While seeing our amazing London City and its beautiful buildings and iconic landmarks.

The children will have their own sketch books, worksheets and colouring sheet to take home and will be able to work on in their own time. All their new-found techniques can be transferred  into their school and homework. They will also have some amazing drawings and sketches to display at home or to show to family, friends and teachers. Their work will also be a great opportunity to start their art portfolio. 

Max. of 10 children, so please book to avoid disappointment. All materials are provided. The children will receive a sketch book to take home to continue their art at home.

TO BOOK: FILL IN THE FORM BELOW, @artwithlittlepics WILL GET BACK TO YOU WITH BANK DETAILS TO CONFIRM YOUR CHILD/REN’S PLACE.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the children who came along to my previous art workshops. The workshop’s were full on all days of inspirational children. The children’s artwork was truly amazing and I was very proud of all the children and their creativity. Their hard work and effort didn’t go unnoticed by myself, Sophie my artist, Miss G my amazing support teacher, Jenny, local crafty mum and Helena, art student. It was an absolute pleasure to be around so many well polite, kind and creative children.

I welcome all feedback positive or critical, as I am always looking to improve my classes. If you are on social media, Facebook (local groups), nextdoor.com and Instagram I would be grateful for posts of the children’s artwork (I would love to see their work up on your walls) and to tell other local families, young and little artist’s about my art classes.
