dot-art Club varies by block so that your young artists can keep coming back for more new and exciting creative adventures.

Young artists will delve into the world of sketching and mark making using various materials, taking inspiration from famous artists to create fantastic drawings. New skills will be developed and discovered using thrilling techniques such as blind drawing, gesture and timed drawing, continuous and expressive line, drawing the world around you using still life, contour and cross contour drawing. Topics will change from week to week, including figurative sketching, creating humorous caricatures from portraits and developing perspective.
