Tuesday 28 – Friday 31 August
10am – 3.30pm
This four-day course offers children the opportunity to work with two artists across the Galleries and Studios at Camden Arts Centre, using a wide range of materials and techniques to playfully consider and create their own kinetic artworks.
In the Ceramics Studio, participants will experiment with clay to consider colour, movement and kinetic sculpture, working across a variety of ceramic techniques including feathering, marbling and stippling to create hanging mobiles. Final works will be glazed and fired in our on-site kilns.
In the Drawing Studio, participants will continue to develop their ideas, working with sound, photography and drawing to create large scale immersive installation works. All materials are provided and there will be an open studio exhibition of artworks on the last day for friends and family to attend.
Free lunchtime care is provided between 12.30 – 1pm, in addition to a morning and afternoon break. Please note that lunch is not provided, therefore all children attending will need to bring a packed lunch with them. Squash and biscuits will be provided for break times.
Courses for 5-7s and 8-11s will be run concurrently throughout the day. We operate strict age restrictions on our children’s courses; please ensure you are booking onto the correct age range for your child.

Natalie Zervou is an artist and educator with an interest in inclusive practice-based research linking play, sculpture and in between states. Within her practice material hierarchies cease to exist and the environmental frames which her sculptures inhabit become part of a wider invite for corporeal participation. As part of her practice-led MA she examined the potential of both psychoanalysis and phenomenology to support our understanding of how inner and outer experiences shape our interactions with different materials and the different worlds in which we live.
