PRIVATE CHILDRENS WORKSHOPS

Your child's genius is their masterpiece

 

 

From 18 months old: Just like our Private Adult Workshops, we offer exciting art experiences for chidren. We work with children as young as 18 months old as this is when they can best start to follow instructions and be engrossed for hours in our specially developed children's creative process. Professional paints on gallery quality canvas, and masks of your artwork design allow your child to manage stunning results to last a lifetime.

School aged children: Older children who are serious about art can express themselves one on one with art stylist Sharron Tancred in a way that's not achievable at art classes ie throwing paint like Jackson Pollock.

For parents, displaying their child's gallery quality artwork in their home or office can embued great feelings of pride, though nothing surpasses the child's own pride.

'Life's A Circus!'

The brief: Police officers Tammy and Ian live a busy life with their 3 gregarious girls, Grace 12 and twins Lauren and Victoria 10. The family buys, renovates and sells homes, so with their busy lives and the girls’ auditory processing syndromes, ‘Life’s a Circus!’. Tammy wanted an artwork which reflected their life – something colourful that would work in any neutral environment.

The strategy: The words on Sharron’s mind mapping list - ballet, music, spectral colours, Kandinsky, Banjo (White Welsh Mountain Pony), Atticus (poodle), Prince Charming (Lauren’s almost-strangled, over-cuddled cat), Victoria’s handstands, Grace’s tutu – formed the picture in Sharron’s mind designed to suit the square format of the landing wall. 

The results: A massive day! 3 little girls who truly enjoyed themselves, gave their all to their masterpiece. Well done Grace, Lauren and Victoria!


 

 

 

'Home'

Client brief – 8 year old Phoebe lives a magical life secluded within the clouds and trees of the Glass House Mountains. Being home schooled, her family look for enriching relevant experiences – like a Private Children’s Workshop with Sharron Tancred!  The brief was to inspire vibrant colours into the space and tell a story about home to last the generations. 

Our strategy – Sharron's aerial scene's composed of layers of birdlife, clouds and Phoebe’s hillside playground for tobogganing, watering, singing and dancing.  Phoebe's the hero, like Liberace dashing out a tune on her piano.  Childhood's an orchestration of colours, smells, sounds and memories; a symphony played once, but captured here forever.

The outcome – “Dear Sharron, We just wanted to say a big thank you for such a fantastic day.  Phoebe had a wonderful time and learnt so much! I also had a very relaxing and enjoyable day by your pool!  Thank you for making Phoebe and I feel so welcome in your studio and al the delicious food!”

 


 

 

 

'My Dreamtime'

Client brief – Life’s funny at times isn’t it.  Sharron called a client interested in a Private Kid’s Workshop but … wrong number. The phone was answered by Dr Houston, who asked questions and, lo and behold, decided to book an appointment for his own kids!  As they’d be moving he wanted something simple and elegant and that could be split up when his girls left home.

Our strategy – Sharron suggested 8 x 40 cm square canvases would allow for varying compositions and later separation.  Over a cup of tea, the discussion and father and girls, aged 6 and 10, Sharron listed activities and objects for her mind mapping technique and designed a dreamy, Chagall-like series with different themes: travel, snow, tulips, music, ice cream, etc.  Later, the concepts were painted with powder iridescence splattered like sunlight here and there for a whimsical effect.

The outcome –  ‘The paintings are great. The girls will certainly remember the experience,’ said Dr Houston.
