Henry Fraser visits Lorna’s Art Class

Dear all,

henry-fraserLast session we looked at the work of Henry Fraser, an Edinburgh based artist, currently working out of Edinburgh Palette. Known for his pared down and abstracted figures or portraits, Henry tries to convey the mystery and transience of the human conditions, making the invisible, visible.
 
Having prepared a canvas with a base layer of paint the mini artists used Henry’s paintings and their own faces as a starting point. (Looking in the mirrors and giggling lots!) After getting some ideas down in pencil they used oil pastels to blend colours and try and capture something of themselves. Then in a wonderful moment of serendipity Henry was just walking past and popped in to see what the children were doing. I do believe he rather liked what he saw!
 
Enjoy half term and pop into the open studio event on 22nd/23rd October, where there are lots of free activities for adults & kids.

Theatre Sans Accent | Theatre sur le bout de la langue!

FRENCH DRAMA : Language and Acting class into one fun workshop!

masksWhether your child is learning French at school, one of the parents is French or simply you want him/her to learn French, join us in this interactive workshop where we will go through the basics of conversational French.

​The children will have the chance to test their capacities and learn new words and skills whilst being creative on stage (this class is also suitable if your child is a complete beginner). Drama games and improvisation exercises will be at the core of the class focusing on building up self assurance in the first place, playing around with sounds, developing vocabulary and discovering French culture.

No snails or frogs will be harmed or used during those workshops! Join us now! more

Alice Boyle visits the Wednesday Advanced Art Class

Alice Boyle visits the Wednesday Advanced Art ClassDear all,

Last session we looked again at the work of the Scottish painter Alice Boyle but this week we had the lady herself to answer our questions. She spoke about how she worked and worked with the children as they turned their designs into paintings. She showed us layering colour and how to work with our hands as well as brushes. We all agreed it was much more fun having the actual artist with us, if a little intimidating. The wee artists were a little shy and over awed but deeply impressed! more
