About Fortismere Art Camp

This Art Camp is suitable for children aged 7-15 years old.

Our students will make life sketches, collages, and will also build structures out of cardboard and glue using these in graphics as an inspiration for their own streetscapes.

These activities will open the eyes of young people to the world of fine artists, designers and architects.

Anyone from 8 years old is welcome.

Our environment is encouraging, inclusive and non-competitive, allowing students to move at their own pace and thus develop their unique skill-set.

Below is a breakdown of subjects we will be covering:

Still life exploring proportions

Sketching using pencil and charcoal.

Life drawing exploring human body anatomy and proportions.

Sketching using pencil and charcoal.

Art exploration 1: Exploring patterns from nature using coloured pencils.

Art exploration 2: Collage making - exploring compositions and colour combinations through abstract forms.

Architectural exploration: Students will create structures deciding on their function, then turning their ideas into sketches. Students will be taught structural elements such as the skeleton, interior and facade then think like an architect and a builder and will attempt to use unified elements.

Model making: The designed structures will be turned into physical models.

Fine graphics - Streetscape: Using students' own structures we’ll create imaginative streetscapes. Exploring technical drawing basics - plan, facade and section views.

Exhibition and Portfolio Making: On the last day, an exhibition will be prepared for parents and other students, after the exhibition students’ artwork will be assembled into portfolios.
