Painting Explorers is an art workshop where children are encouraged to work as artists do, exploring different techniques and developing their visual language. We propose term classes as well as special themed workshops during the school holidays.

Painting Explorers started in 1999 at Crouch End Community Centre. The children have produced a high standard of work which has been publicly exhibited. Since September 2002 I have been teaching in my studio in Finsbury Park, small groups of maximum 6 pupils. The children are exited and stimulated to work in an artist's environment with quality art materials and instruments.

During the classes the students learn new techniques and develop their artistic skills through a variety of exercises. They work with different media in two and three dimensions and use traditional as well as less conventional tools. For example, when the session concentrates on observation work on the human body, the children work on movement and ?expression corporelle? (improvisation games and modelling) as well as, quick sketching, drawing with two hands.... If the focus is on texture and colour, they are encouraged to experiment with various types of paints and inks, explore their imagination and concentrate on their own style. Little by little, as they become familiar with the techniques and the instruments and media, they integrate the difference between 'observation' and 'imagination' and how the one feeds the other.
