Meet the Masters Art Workshop

The Children's Museum of WA and ART ON THE MOVE are collaborating to bring you Meet the Masters. The workshops connect children to the artist and their motivations, introducing new techniques and ways of looking at things.  Meet the Masters will introduce your children to the backgrounds, focus and techniques of some of the most famous artists that ever lived - including some that still do! Each workshop is based on one artist and is split into three parts - Inspire, Educate and Create. INSPIRE: Using books, posters and multimedia we explore the fascinating lives and famous (and not so famous) works of the Master artists, what they loved and why. EDUCATE: The next step is experimenting with various techniques and media used by the artist. CREATE: This is where we not only recreate techniques just learnt, but add our own flair to improve the works of the masters and take it a step further! Not only is art fun, but it helps kids learn and grow in so many different ways... they learn about culture, geography and how art relates to other subjects, increases confidence, expands visual learning, teaches collaboration and accountability and of course allows them to express themselves in more creative ways.
