I am a mother of two wonderfully creative children with boundless energy. Their thirst for knowledge and enthusiasm for creativity has encouraged me to set up Dot Kids; workshops and classes for children which encourage creative confidence, contextual awareness and a love of the Creative Arts.
My own background is in art and photography, having studied at the London School of Printing. I have worked for many years in the Education & Multimedia Unit at the British Museum, producing educational facilities for schools.

PAINTING IN RESPONSE TO MUSIC

In this workshop we will discover the artist Kandinsky’s Compositions. We will discuss the emotions that music evokes and ‘feel’ the music in our painting, building self-expression, confidence & creative freedom.
Each child will create their own painting on canvas, in response to music.
Your child may get a little messy during the workshop, please make sure that they are not wearing any clothing that is special and ideally provide them with an apron or old shirt. Dot Kids can not take any responsibility for any damage to clothes or shoes due to the art
