Holiday Camps

Fortismere runs regular holiday camps.  These offer a wide range of fun and games for children to enjoy including Design & Technology, Chess, Robotics and Coding, Dance, Drama and Multi Sports.  Holiday camps are ideal if you find it hard to balance work and keep your children entertained during the school holidays. Holiday camps can also support the social interaction lost during lockdowns.
Activities run between 09.00 am -15.00 pm each day and take place at Fortismere School, Tetherdown, London N10 1NE.
The cost for a full week of activities is £80.00.  We can also offer an early 08.00 am drop-off option which includes a light breakfast of toast, cereal and juice. 

Please contact Maria Demetriou for information. mdemetriou@fortismere.org.uk

Week 3 8th Aug  Art Age 7-15

Our students will make life sketches, collages, and will also build structures out of cardboard and glue using these in graphics as an inspiration for their own streetscapes. These activities will open the eyes of young people to the world of fine artists, designers and architects. Anyone from 8 years old is welcome. Our environment is encouraging, inclusive and non-competitive, allowing students to move at their own pace and thus develop their unique skill-set. Below is a breakdown of subjects we will be covering: 

Still life exploring proportions

Sketching using pencil and charcoal.

Life drawing exploring human body anatomy and proportions

Sketching using pencil and charcoal.

Art exploration 1

Exploring patterns from nature using coloured pencils.

Art exploration 2

Collage making - exploring compositions and colour combinations through abstract forms. 

Architectural exploration

Students will create structures deciding on their function, then turning their ideas into sketches. Students will be taught structural elements such as the skeleton, interior and facade then think like an architect and a builder and will attempt to use unified elements.

Model making The designed structures  will be turned into physical models.

Fine graphics - Streetscape Using students' own structures we’ll create imaginative streetscapes. Exploring technical drawing basics - plan, facade and section views. 

Exhibition and Portfolio Making On the last day, an exhibition will be prepared for parents and other students, after the exhibition students’ artwork will be assembled into portfolios.
