3D Decoart Acrylic painting + Clay + varnish
Inspired by René Magritte, this workshop aims to use surrealism & 3D art to draw out a sense of identity from even the shyest child. Children will be guided to compose a visual illustration that expresses they are who they are in the present.
Through a series of questions, our students will self-discover what shapes their lives in the now. We will carry that over to designing whimsical elements using various line work, shape, color, value, tone, texture and depth with clay relief too. With a twist of realistic images using unusual colors and blending seemingly unrelated objects, your child will discover their inner-being as a masterpiece in its own.
In every surrealist painting, there is always quite a bit to look at. As our students free their mind of all analytical thought, and freely paint ideas that are buried deep in their minds of who they are, what will we see?
