Felsted School offers free art masterclasses and competition for children on nature theme
Felsted School is opening up its art resources by offering free online masterclasses inspired by nature for children aged 4 to 16.
Those who take part can also enter a competition. It is also free, with the chance to win a £50 art supplies voucher.
The masterclasses highlight different techniques with accompanying video and written resources. They are: Land Art (ages 3+), Illustrated Letter (7+), Tonal Study: Animal Portraits (9+), Tonal Study: Objects of Nature (13+) and Nature Print (13+).
They are delivered by Felsted's heads of art Sarah Mitchell (prep school) and Elizabeth Jackson (senior school).
All classes and resources can be found at www.felsted.org/art. Competition entries should be submitted by Monday June 7 and the winners will be announced on June 18. All entrants will receive a certificate of entry via their current school.
A school spokesperson said: "Felsted pupils are fortunate to have wonderful facilities and specialist teachers to study art as part of the curriculum, a co-curricular activity or as a hobby. We wish to share our resources with the community through this initiative.
"At Felsted, art can be studied at GCSE, A level and as part of the International Baccalaureate Diploma, and students regularly use their Felsted art pathway to obtain great offers from universities in a range of subjects.
"Former students have succeeded in national competitions and had their work displayed at the Saatchi Gallery. Scholarships are available from Year 9."
Felsted is an independent day and boarding school near Great Dunmow which educates boys and girls aged 4 to 18 from around the UK and overseas.
