I am happy to announce that I will be running Drawing Workshops at the ArtScience Museum for their Dinosaurs: Dawn to Extinction exhibition which opens later this month!

If you are interested, you can get your ticket early to visit the exhibition and make sure to choose one of the dates where I will be running the workshops:

Dates: Sunday 2, 9  & 23 February, 9 & 23 March, 6 & 20 April

– Sketch-a-Fossil:

Bring fossils to life by drawing them in detail. Observation drawing . Make your piece stand out by placing it in a pre-historical landscape (optional collage). Ammonite or Fossilized wood will be our inspiration.

Timing: 45 minute workshops at 12.30pm and 1.15pm

– Sculpting Fun: Shells and Bones:

What better way to understand a fossil than to feel it in 3D? Carve your own sculpted shell or bone out of soap, and bring your replica home. Children under the age of 8 require adult supervision. Ammonite or T-rex claw will be our inspiration.

Timing: 45 minute workshops at 2.30pm and 3.15pm

Many things are happening this month!

  • I have prepared the T-shirts above for a private party. These were silk-screened using my usual paper-silk-screen technique. The design is simple and the girls will spend some time decorating them using a mixture of textile markers and sparkly liners… I’ll post the result!
  • Another party at the Museum. Remember that you can book your own party at the Singapore Art Museum!
  • Opening on the 7th of June is 2 and 1/2 D Cinema at the Playdome. Make sure you come and visit – you have until the 26th of June. Buy a ticket to one of the shows and get unlimited entry to the exhibitions on that day. Or buy a season ticket and come visit often!

March is here and the children need a break. You’ve been asking for them, so here they are… open-studio workshops are back!

My studio will be open for easy, drop-in sessions. Just choose which day you’d like to come and come and join a small group of like-minded 5-12 year olds. The projects listed below are starting points – who knows what you’ll end up inventing! All the material is provided. Just bring an open mind.

On offer for the week of 14th to 18th of March 2011:

Monday is Printmaking. Using recycled material, learn the age-old technique of “etching”, and use a real printing-press to produce a small edition of your drawing.
Tuesday is Design your T-shirt. Bring your own T-shirt or buy one here, and use paints and silk-screen techniques to personalise your T-shirt.

Wednesday is Make a Book. Learn the basics of book-making, design a few books from an A4 page, and come home with a colourful notebook.

Thursday is Polymer Clay. Learn how to make colourful patterns using polymer clay. Invent your own! Make marbles, beads or small creatures.

Friday is Clay Creatures … and their house. Make a polymer clay creature and then make them a house / flying saucer / jungle… to sleep in!

Time:  2-4pm 

Fee:

$40 per child per session.

First of a new series: Birthday Workshops at SAM

Last week-end saw the launch of the new Birthday Party program at SAM, run by Isadora’s Workshop!

The theme of the 2-hour party was “Be A Sculptor”. 10 children walked through the Learning Gallery, observed and played games, before exploring everyday materials and transforming them into fun sculptures. Can you guess what the sculptures are made from?
