About the Session

Snack Time Party Time!

Join Artist Dawn Tan for a fun session to learn her creative ways with watercolouring! Participants will learn about watercolours, the nitty gritty of the medium itself, as well as some easy-peasy tricks when painting. We’ll then look at our favourite packaged snacks and create a fun and exciting piece. We’ll talk layout, scale, composition, contrast and the various art elements and principles.

This activity works well not only for primary but also secondary students. An easily adaptable workshop that’s always sure to guarantee laughter. I mean, snacks and colour – how could one not smile?!
