Set amongst the hustle and bustle of the Jazz Festival our workshops all sold out. Kids made their own guitars and banjo's - adding their own style and flair! Kids also learned about chambers and acoustics, with the sights and sounds of the Jazz festival buzzing in the background.
Inspired by cactuses in their wonderful shapes and sizes, kids made 2 projects to take home. Theyl used observation to make an artwork (water-colour and acrylic), and used their hands-on skills to construct a cardboard cactus.
Our sport themed workshop! Kids chose their team/s colours, combined with a touch of spark! and made a design on a t-shirt to take home and dazzle! Theyused fabric paint, work with pattern and shape, and were encouraged to think creatively about a design inspired by their team colours.
An opportunity for small kids to make some BIG art! Kids will explored painting and collage with sustainable materials and created something eye catching to take home and admire.
Kids watched an animation of Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are, as inspiration for considering set design. They made their own theatrical headpiece, and collaborated to make a set for a Wild Things! photoshoot.
I learnt more here than I do at school! 12 year old.
I loved being able to choose my own materials to make the headpiece. There were so many interesting things to use! 11 year old.
WILD THNGS @ PICKWIT + SPROUT
Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are, brings to life how powerful strong emotions can be, & illustrates how imagination can solve life's problems. This workshop combined social emotional themes with creative artmaking. Kids used textiles & and collage to create their own Max crown and tail, and pastels and watercolour to draw their own Wild Things monster.
This workshop designed especially for fans of AFL and AFLW sold out!
It was so exciting to see kids engaging in art through a passion for sport. Kids made their own Giacometti inspired footy player sculptures and designed a giant sized footy card, and I'm pretty sure we'll be running this workshop again sometime soon!
