Art Box School Holiday Workshops

Drawing is always the foundation and with our guidance and direction, students will learn how to translate their sketches into, paintings, sculptures and prints. Each term children create works on paper to develop an understanding of how they will approach their significant framed work, canvas painting or sculpture.
