Ginger Studio offers an innovative after school Visual Arts program with a focus on nurturing each child’s individual creativity. Students are supplied with varied stimulus material and encouraged to "think like real artists": drawing inspiration from the natural world, real life objects in the studio, the work of adult artists, children’s literature illustration, other children’s art, photography, architecture, colours and patterns. They are supported in every step to create their own unique artworks, and lessons are differentiated to cater to all ages.
Each term offers a new program around a loose central theme. We might start with a directed drawing lesson to give students the skills and confidence to work towards creating their own imaginative versions, whilst sequentially building the technical skills needed to use a wide variety of media.
Exploration of materials is key and students are exposed to many types of artmaking: hand-building with paperclay, painting with watercolour and artist-quality acrylic paint, drawing from life, stimulus material and the imagination, using pastel/pencil/texta/charcoal/chalk or mixed media, printmaking with found materials, intaglio or monoprinting, as well as all manner of collage and contemporary crafts such as weaving, for example.
Students find our classes equal parts relaxing, exciting and esteem-building, and are encouraged to create in a supportive environment. A Little Ginger Studio Art class is a space to feel a sense of achievement. Students in our classes develop a real sense of camaraderie, and positive encouragement and collaboration between pupils is encouraged. However, ultimately, our classes are about having some creative, messy fun!
