Primary Art Class teacher Emily Gopaul teaches Impressionism for young artists on 14 October, in Norwich. With over 10 years teaching art to primary and secondary schools, Emily is an experienced educator who believes that,
“all children are entitled to an art education that is inspiring and diverse, one which sparks a love of art as well as develops skills in a range of materials.”
Emily is the author of Teaching Primary Art and Design, published by Bloomsbury and out in October 2017. This workshop is aimed at young people aged 5-15. In this workshop, participants will explore the key concepts and techniques of Impressionism through looking at well-known examples. They will work ‘en plein air’ at easels on the Quayside to create their own impressionist painting on canvas after experimenting with the techniques and approaches of famous impressionists.
We will be emphasising the effects of light, mixing colours on the canvas, using complementary colours and using artist’s tools and techniques.Take home your own impressionist masterpiece!
