Still Life Painting with a Production Designer

2 Hour Experience at Your Home

This experience will teach children about production design and still life painting! They will learn several painting techniques, and create their very own still life that will become part of a mini art exhibition.

Karen will share her industry experience and expertise on iconic production designs and sets such as How the Grinch Stole Christmas (Live Action), Harry Potter, and The Greatest Showman. Kids will get to hear how movie sets are built and learn where props come from.

After a wiggle and snack break, Karen will guide a lesson on still life painting. Children will stage their own still life, and using watercolors bring their own masterpiece to life using various basic painting techniques. When the paintings are complete, kids will share with one another about their own artwork, and celebrate one another's!
