Artist and teacher set to run art workshops for children near Grantham this summer

An experienced teacher and artist is running a number of art workshops for children at The Old Sorting House in Bottesford, during July and August.

Glenda Gibson will instruct in the use of watercolours, acrylics, felting, printing and multimedia in a series of fun and engaging activities for small groups of children in different age ranges.

One class uses wet felting to make a picture, while another focuses on collage to create a gunnel animal. A third will look at an artist such, Este MacLeod as a starting point for exploring layering in painting.

Split into age groups (four to seven and seven to 11,) each class will have a maximum of six, so they will be given ample space to explore their creative individuality, something Glenda is very committed to.

She explained: “I am blown away by the inventiveness of children. I love the collaborative process of exploring and capturing their creative potential in their art works.

“These classes are my way as an artist and teacher to help them learn skills to do that.”

The classes are suitable for children of all abilities with an interest in creating art, all materials will be supplied including aprons, although wearing messy play clothes is still advised.

The classes take place on Wednesdays in a dedicated studio in the Old Sorting House Gallery and Workshop, 25 High Street in Bottesford.

Places cost £10 per child per lesson. Booking is via www.theoldsortinghouse.com. Look for the class ages in the right navigation bar.
