The Fauves: WIld and Wonderful Landscapes5th November 2015 - 13th May 2016
This workshop introduces children to the Fauves who used colour in exciting and unexpected ways to create landscapes full of joy, energy and movement. Using complimentary colours and simplifying the complex elements in a landscape, the children experimented with acrylic paint on textured paper to create lively and expressive paintings.
These workshops took place during the academic year 2015-2016 which was designated Crabtree's Year of Art. The work was mounted and exhibited as part of the celebratory Open Day in July 2016.
