Hi Kirsty,

The class and I would like to thank you once again for a fantastic day at Tilney all saints. The children are still talking about it and their portraits look amazing. We will definitely be recommending you ��

All the best and hopefully we will see you again in the future.

Many thanks,

Jennifer Lancaster.

Corporate Functions / Team Building
Creative Drawing Workshop

Many adults have not touched a pencil or engaged in anything creative since leaving school, why not take your staff out of their comfort zone and engage the right hemisphere of their brains.
I run creative drawing workshops that are aimed at encouraging individuals to be open-minded and flexible.
You will learn skills that are useful and enriching, have fun, collaborate, interr-act and have a tangible outcome out at the end.

Fees: Up to 30 people: £250 per day. Workshops can run for a full day or if you have more than 30 people the day can be split into two sessions to accommodate more people.

Please don't hesitate to contact me to discuss your requirements: 01263 570151,  kirstyoleary@outlook.com

Testimonials

"I really enjoyed drawing our own figures, it was really interesting and good fun." (Matthew Year 2)

"I got much, much better at using chalk to draw - and I can practice at home." (Megan Year 2)

"At the start I didn't think I could do art very well but afterwards I realised I was quite good at it." (Toby Year 4)

"I really learned how to use shading to improve my artwork - it made it look much better." (Harrison Year 5)

"I learned different techniques about how to trace and discovered textures that I didn't know existed." (Elizabeth Year 6)

"The whole school had a fantastic experience. From Reception to Year 6, the quality of the artwork was stunning and the pupils developed skills that they will be able to use long into the future." (Mark Carlyle, Headteacher)

Kirsty ran 8 very successful drawing workshops at Cromer Junior School during our Live Arts Week. She engaged each group, aged between 7 and 11 years, teaching them a range of different drawing techniques, leading to 8 large collaborative pieces of art work. The teachers and other adults were extremely impressed by the level of presentation and tuition Kirsty offered. She had a very calm, intuitive manner with the children. I would certainly recommend employing Kirsty in a similar or related capacity.” Whilhelm De Neve, Head, Cromer Junior School
