Draw Like Quentin Blake

AUGUST 2 TO 5

$220 + GST

1:30 PM TO 4:30 PM

Roald Dahl is, of course, a literary institution, but fewer people are aware of his equally talented partner in crime. Quentin Blake’s illustrations embody the unique characteristics of a Dahl tall tale, bringing to life everyone from Charlie to the Witches, to James and his ridiculously giant peach. With simple pen and black ink, Blake creates rib-tickling humour. Who can forget the impact of the bulbous nosed farmer in Fantastic Mr. Fox? Using his Revolting Rhymes (among others), we’ll celebrate Blake’s incredible inky creations.

Christianne will hold masterclasses across the week to build out each child’s own distinct style as we intersperse excerpts from different films with these sessions to see how Blake’s caricatures inspired great filmmakers. On our final day together, campers will take watercolour palettes and set to adding splashes of colour to their own ink creations. With reams of inspiration, there’ll be no shortage of incredibly unique pieces being clutched tightly and carried home. Both images and words will captivate across the particular week, so make sure your child is there.
