This November, we held batik workshops at DES nursery and kindergarten!
The projects were inspired by Sonia Delaunay, Keith Haring, Paul Klee and Joan Miro.
We did a presentation for each artist, explaining to the children about the art movements, the colours and the shapes used. Then each child drew on a piece of paper using markers, in the style of the artist. The next day, we explained the process of batik and the children had the opportunity to try draw their drawings with wax on fabric. On the final day, they coloured in their designs. It was a lovely experience and we hope we will be back again next year!
