ART AND PROP DESIGN
A collaborative club with 'Prop Remedies' launched in 2018 and running from St Mary's C of E School, Twickenham. Katie is joined by Thea Collins in bringing a unique art experience to pupils in fun and engaging weekly classes.
Each week, children design and create their own props & scenery with a professional designer who brings fresh ideas & guidance from the TV, Film and Theatre industry.
Clubs focus on Prop building and Theatre design, encouraging pupils to set their imaginations free through the exploration of new art techniques and a wide range of materials.
Past projects have included; Wild West wanted posters, safe for theatre foam Swords, vintage signs, monogram letter creations, clay pots, foam cakes, wooden puppets, old fashioned treasure maps, magic wands, monster books, print art and collaborative large scenery pieces.
If you'd like WRDC and Props Remedies to pop into your school for a themed workshop or lunchtime club contact Katie today!
