Autumn Art Series

Art classes with Caroline presents an Autumn Art Series for young creatives!


 Learn how to create a shape shifting Pooka Mask


Inspired by the tales of the Pooka from Celtic Folklore,

this art tutorial shows how to create a shapeshifting Pooka Mask.

The Pooka was a shape shifter trickster often seen during Oiche Samhain (Halloween).

The Pooka was recalled to shape shift and take the form of a horse, cat, hare, dogs and wolfs and even an old man!



 Explore Subtractive Charcoal drawing


In this art session we shall be trying subtractive drawing with willow charcoal.

We shall explore this drawing technique by drawing animals

which are black and white in colour.


 Experimenting with Mono-printing

In this tutorial we shall experiment with the process of mono-printing with paint,
markers and acetate. Reacting to the marks we make during the process to create
unique pictures and art works.

For this tutorial it can be fun to gather some flat materials to print onto your pages
like some leaves or flowers, feather or paper cut outs!


Clay Work

 Building a Gorgoch Irish Fairy

Inspired by the folklore surrounding Oiche Samhain, Gorgoch were half human half fairy and travelled from Scotland to settle in Ireland.

They were known to be hard working and possessed the power of invisibility, which they only revealed to those they truly trusted.

In this tutorial we shall create a Gorgoch out of air-drying clay and then begin to
design your very own mythical creature!

This series comprises of 5 online 30 minute art tutorials and an art box full of all the
needed art materials.

Once you purchase the Online Autumn Art Series, your art box is delivered to your door and you will have access to the online art series for 30 days so plenty of time to fit each tutorial into a busy household schedule.

The tutorials range from Sculpture, Printmaking, Painting and Drawing to Clay work.

These art tutorials are suitable for ages 7year +.

They are a mixture of basic techniques and process led art making with a focus on discovery and play with materials rather than replication.

This original series has been inspired by the Autumn season which brings the Celtic new year wrapped in Irish folklore, tales and myths. Each tutorial explores a different technique and material followed by how to use the artistic prompts included in your art box for to fuel a young artistic imagination.


This online Autumn Art Series provides the convenience of the art
materials being posted to your door and allows the artists of the
household to get creative at home at their own leisure.
