Interactive Art Workshop - Jean Michel Basquiat
Time & Location
A LIVE, interactive online workshop based around inspirationalartist Jean-Michel Basquiat - especially designed for children! Delivered and created by the Dot Kids Founder, Julie Bevan.
Together we will discover & discuss Jean-Michel Basquiat & in particular his Blue Horse painting.
I will encourage your child to embrace self-expression in art; giving each child the creative confidence and freedom to create their own unique paintings or drawings inspired by Basquiat. Limited numbers attend, to allow full interaction, discussion and sharing of art work if the children wish to. THIS IS A LIVE ONLINE WORKSHOP.Learn more about the Dot Kids Zoom Online Safeguarding Practice
WHEN Wednesday 10th June 2020
TIME: 3PM GMT+ Please join the Zoom Waiting room at 2.30pm GMT+I will let everyone into the zoom meeting at approx 2.58pm GMT+
The Workshop starts at 3pm GMT+ The zoom waiting room is open for 30 minutes before the session to allow plenty of time for logging in.
It is advisable to log in at just after 2.30pm, as once the workshop starts I will not be able to assist if you have any log in or password issues. SESSION LENGTH: The session length will be approx 60 minutes but as the session is live it may last longer. This sometimes happens when the children are sharing and discussing the art that they have created at the end - as I am keen to give everyone a chance to speak and share.
If your child needs to leave the zoom meeting at 4pm please let me know in advance, so that your child gets a chance to share before leaving. Your child will not miss anything by leaving at 4pm.
AGE Suggested age 5-11 years. There is flexibility around the age ranges.
PRICE This price is per household (via one device), not per child, so siblings can watch together for £7.97.
DELIVERED ONLINE VIA ZOOM The session will be delivered online via Zoom, a video conference website and App used for distance learning & meetings.

There is no pressure to do this though. I recognise that not all children are comfortable doing so. If your child prefers to just watch and create that is fine. As the sessions are very inclusive and do not centre on perfection and 'copying' but on self-expression, I often find that children that are very shy at the beginning find the confidence to speak after just one or two workshops, giving them extreme confidence. Your & your child can also choose to disable the video camera, if your child would prefer not to be visable on the zoom call.
