School Holiday Workshops (Dec 2019)

Another set of art-farty fun school holiday workshops took place in Plumstead, at IN THE ZONE. In The Zone specialises in small groups (max 8) learners in 3-hour creative morning workshops during the school holidays.

December was no exception and we started our set with a ‘perspective’ painting, … if you lay on your back and looked up at trees, what would you see? And these were the beautiful results, all with an added 3-D element:

Workshop 1

Trees at Night / Trees on the Beach / Summer Holiday
Trees at Night / Group Shot / Sunset Tree

Workshop 2

Giraffes were the order of the day. Each learner had to choose whether they were going to paint one or more, portrait or landscape, face-on or profile, the whole or just the head & neck? Plus, they had to choose a human item to add to the mix:

Giraffe with Scarf / Giraffe with Headphones / Giraffe with Moustache & Hat
Giraffe with Earings / A Game of Tic Tac Toe / Group Shot

Workshop 3

Who knew that In The Zone had already planned the project ahead of time and the learners all made their very own Tic-Tac-Toe boards and painted rock pieces, each of which had a theme:

Flowers & Butterflies / Party Time / Under The Sea
Wild Animals / Smiley Faces / Fir & Apple Trees
The Elements / Close Up of Flowers / Call to Action

All in all, the learners had the craziest painting time. There were often shrieks of laughter, flying splatters of paint, giggles and chats, paint on fingers, paint on faces and other places too! We all had a ball.

Have a wonderful holiday everyone. See you next year kiddos!!!
