Afterschool Art Club for Kids | Portrait Painting & Drawing

November 7 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm


Come and join us at Flourish at our Art Club hosted each week by Mr.P on a Tuesday afterschool in Dumfries Town Centre!

Portrait Drawing and Painting, november 7th 4pm – 5.30pm

Can you draw a face? Can you draw somebody’s face? Let Mr P guide you through the process.

Afterschool Art Club with Mr P has been designed for children aged 5 – 12 years who enjoy expressing themselves in Art and/or problem solving in Design. With direct links to the Curriculum for Excellence we will explore a broad range of skills and themes that build-on and reinforce experiences hopefully introduced at school.

During each workshop we will start with the Experiences and Outcomes as laid out in the Scottish school Curriculum. The processes we use will produce evidence that can then be shared and taken home to treasure.

Just as importantly, we will ensure that our time together, exploring Art, is quite simply fun as well as inspiring. During after school Art Club we will discover new ways of looking at the world, create our own artwork, learn new skills and reflect on what we have done!

All materials are included in this class, so no need to bring anything (unless children would like to!)
Classes are small, maximum class number is 10 children, to ensure they get the personal tuition and encouragement they need to help with creating each project. There is a minimum number of participants required for the course to go ahead.

Mr P. is currently a primary school teacher and Art specialist who has been involved in education for nearly 30 years. He has taught in over 40 of the schools within Dumfries & Galloway. During his teaching career he has taught Art & Design to a very diverse range of learners: From pre-school toddlers to post-work retirees. Mr P even has his very own YouTube Channel with lessons on various aspects of Art & Design in the Scottish ‘primary school’ curriculum. From Nursery pupils to Design Undergraduate students Mr P has taught them all, at some point!

We will:
Take time to really look at the human face and how some famous artists have tried to draw/paint faces
Draw an accurate picture of a face
Position parts of a drawing on a page
Work to a deadline (workshops have limited time, unfortunately)
Evaluate our work and what we have learnt.

All our workshop and class bookings are non-refundable. If circumstances change, something pops up and you can no longer make a workshop or event please CONTACT US with at least 7 days’ notice before the day of the class or event. We try our best to price our workshops as fairly as possible and offer good value for money. We therefore must have a clear cancellation policy to ensure that we cover our costs and the ongoing viability of the workshop. Unfortunately, we are unable to make exceptions to this policy. This is to be fair to all our customers and to allow us to keep our class sizes small with lots of personal attention. We urge you to carefully check your diary to ensure that you are available to attend any workshops or events you are booking with us. Please refer to our WORKSHOP BOOKING POLICY for terms and conditions. We hope you understand and thank you for your support.
