7+ years (accompanied by 1 adult)

Using traditional artist techniques you will let your imagination wander into fantastical places and translate them onto paper. This art workshop will guide you step by step on creating an abstract continuous line drawing filled with colour and creativity.

Activity 1 : An abstract ‘walk the line’ artwork and colour it in using a variety of materials (pencils, paint, marker, crayons)

Activity 2: A continuous line drawn self portrait

Activity 3: Another walk the line drawing but this time trying to incorporate shapes into it, it could be a landscape, somewhere in their imagination (e.g. a rocket in space with stars and a galaxy)

Jill Carpin is an illustrator, designer and animator based in Brighton. She has a passion for bright colours and bold shapes and takes inspiration from her childhood home of The Seychelles, using it to create her tropical nature inspired designs.


£15 per child (adult free) Only 1 adult per child
