Holiday Gift Making Workshops: Self Portraits & Classic Paintings

Through step by step instruction and constant visual demonstration, Chris Babcock and her tutors show your child how to paint a SELF-PORTRAIT, MONET’S GARDEN or HENRI MATISSE’S INTERIOR WITH VIOLETS using only the finest professional acrylics on museum quality paper. Out of these paintings, each student will produce the image of his or her choice! All paintings will be wrapped in pretty paper, silk ribbon and tagged with a card made by your little artist addressed to a loved one. We encourage your child to give the painting they create to parents, grandparents or anyone you want them to make a holiday gift for Christmas or Hanukah! 

IMPORTANT: Chris will email you 5 days before the class to ask which image your child wants to paint. If you plan on having your child make a self-portrait, email Chris to set up a time to have your child’s photo taken or send in a photo that is of the head and shoulders only with lots of light and details on the face. 

How to prepare

Please only wear only old clothes and shoes and pack a sack lunch and a water bottle to last the entire day.
