The newly formed artist team Cathy, Luke & Tracey, aka artHAUS, are set to launch their new art programme for children in Chorlton next week.
This initiative to provide good quality art instruction over a course of 10 weeks will kick off at Chorlton C E Primary School on Monday 20th September. The artists have been very busy devising the programme and getting set up for action with budding artists from Years 1 to 6 over three afternoons a week for this pilot project.
“We have decided to limit the places to a maximum of 15 children per session. This way we can give each child more help and attention”. The programme includes some traditional stuff – drawing and observation techniques etc. – and some evaluation of styles seen in the work of the Old Masters, Modern and Post-Modern Art and more contemporary work. “We’ll be encouraging children to see more when they look and get to grips with a range of decent quality artist materials. We can’t wait to get started – we’re so excited – and looking forward to sharing our enthusiasm with the new generation of Artful Splodgers!!’
