Inspiration From The Master’s Series
This series “Inspiration from the Masters” consists of 8 lessons of 8 different “Masters” of Art. Each lesson is recommended to be 180 minutes duration, and can be taken independently or in combinations. This “Masters” Series is specially written for young children and beginners of art to draw inspiration from the Great Masters; from Van Gogh (1853-1890), Monet (1840-1926), Dali (1904-1989) to contemporary artists like Lichtenstein (1923-1997). This series of lessons is planned to guide our young artists through the various styles and techniques alongside the various Great Masters of Art.
First exposure to the Great Masters from the past to the present enables students to relate to the various art movements.
The Great Masters’ styles are made easy for young artists to access and express in their own ways. Students will be inspired to compare, analyze and synthesise the knowledge and skills gained.
Each lesson will consist of the life story of a Great Master, focusing on his unique style, an introduction of the technical knowledge to be applied for the students artwork, followed by a step-by-step hands-on workshop for the students to appreciate the master’s creation.
Understanding what made them famous during their time, modelling after the Great Masters and integrating ideas across the time line should strengthen students art foundation and encourage further creativity towards their individual styles and application. Time and space can be arranged at designated period for students to showcase individual creative expression.
The “Inspiration from the Great Masters” programme is eligible for the 50% Tote Board Arts Grant subsidy.
