Programme details

Parent-child Fun Sketching Class
In association with the exhibition "Pixar 30 Years of Animation: Hong Kong Celebration of Friendship and Family"

The family plays a critical role in the growth of a child. With "family" as the theme, this fun class invites children aged six to ten to take part with their parents. As sketching is the foundation of drawing, the instructor will teach the participants how to use sketch and colour pencils to explore this art form. The participants will learn the skills of using dots, lines, surfaces, brightness, shades and darkness to help them understand the fundamental concepts of forms and proportions. The participants will create their own artworks with lovely cartoon characters and express their love for their family through their creations.
