School Caricaturing Workshops
I am now offering school workshops on how to do caricatures. Something that will fit into any curriculum but works well in a scheduled art week.
It is aimed at key stage 2 age group and I normally have about 30 taking the workshop but I'm happy to do two sessions in one day. The session would last about two hours.
I give a very brief history, and I work with your interactive white board showing artwork with fun instruction. I quickly get them drawing.
I start off with subjects that aren't actually in the classroom so that they get used to drawing caricatures without upsetting anybody and start to have fun with it.
I am very clear about the fact caricatures are not to be taken seriously.
I roll out long pieces of lining paper so the children can sit opposite each other on long tables and enjoy watching each other's work. I call this my doodle sheet.
They start by drawing in pencil first but then I will give them each a sharpie and a brush pen to try.
I hope I've sparked your interest - for more information on School classes and a video of a school workshop in action please e-mail me. I look forward to hearing from you.
Caricaturing Workshop for Adult Art Groups and Clubs
Allow me to take over your art class ,club meeting or office fun day - I offer a 2 hour tutorial on how to draw caricatures.
I set you exercises and we really have fun learning that special caricaturists way to look at a face.
You'll never be able to sit on public transport again without looking and analysing that strangers face in front of you!
Try out different pens and if there's time have a pic done by a seasoned caricaturist/anarchist.
