Tuesday 23 – Friday 26 October
10.00am – 3.30pm
This four-day course takes inspiration from the current exhibition, Landline by Amy Sillman, and offers children a fun, playful and creative environment to make their own artworks.
Working with two artists across the Galleries and Studios at Camden Arts Centre, children will use a range of techniques and processes including design, illustration, animation, ceramics and zine-making.
Working in the Ceramics Studio, artist Fredrik Andersson will demonstrate the decorative potential of clay and encourage participants to use bold colours and sgrafitto illustration techniques to decorate their own vessels and tiles produced during the sessions. In the Drawing Studio, participants will continue to develop their ideas with artist Soofiya Andry on graphic design and animation projects to create their own zines and murals.
All materials are provided, and final ceramic pieces will be glazed and fired in our on-site kilns.
There will be an open studio exhibition of artworks at 3.00pm on the last day for friends and family to attend.
Free lunchtime care is provided between 12.30 – 1.15pm, in addition to a morning and afternoon break. Please note that lunch is not provided, therefore all children attending will need to bring a packed lunch with them. Squash and biscuits will be provided for break times.
Courses for 5-7s and 8-11s will be run concurrently throughout the day. We operate strict age restrictions on our children’s courses; please ensure you are booking onto the correct age range for your child.
Fredrik Andersson (a.k.a. FreddeLanka) is a Swedish illustrator, ceramicist and sometime writer, who migrated to London five years ago to study at Camberwell College of arts where he did a BA in Illustration. Andersson makes use of bold colours and shapes to create a wide range of work from ceramics to digital drawings that feed back into each other. His practice is based around human interactions and is heavily autobiographical, using his sense of humour as a way to process his emotions from the happy to the sad. Read more
Soofiya Andry is a graphic designer, illustrator and design educator. Their art practice articulates a commentary on gender, race, politics and bodies through a radical social and anarchist approach. Their practice utilises a variety of forms, including but not limited to, zines, book arts, writing, collaborations and workshops to deconstruct narratives. With a love of bright colour, neon aesthetics and big ideas both Soofiya and their work aim to dissent, disrupt and resist. Read more
