Whilst thinking of posters, of books and illustrations, we will utilise visual language and a wide range of exciting materials and techniques, including but not limited to drawing, mono-printing, screen-printing, collage and mark making to create works on paper that speak for themselves! The series of three classes will start with harnessing their imagination through showing examples of screen-printed posters that use simple shapes to narrate the story. Then we will start to sketch – here we will learn how to abstract and communicate ideas through symbols, colours and shapes. This fun and engaging class will result in a poster series that kids will be able to take home to start their own poster art collection at home.
