Silly set up, super hot day and lots of enthusiasm so kids produced these great observational drawings!!!! Beautiful pencil drawings that will be turned into something else next week…not sure yet what and how but will keep you posted 🙂 x
Giving another life to a dry rose and unused old wall paper…always amazes me how different we see the world around us. Same subject, numerous representations…all exquisite in there own right! Love it 🙂
Imagine a city square or a public garden or…how would your sculpture look like, what color would it be, what do you see when you walk around it.
While I was on a work trip, my friend Mekette took over classes and set this project for the kids to do. The brief was to transform an animal by being inspired by a favorite artist…some are easily recognised and some are more obscure, but the results are super! I wish my photography was better on the day…sorry kids! 🙁
Patience and perseverance helped kids to produce these pieces, and I think it was worth it…and they love them most importantly! Organic, dynamic and alive 🙂
This week we were looking at monochromatic colours, how to create tint and shade…a very quick and satisfying project with a little help from low tack tape!…Instant poster for the wall!
As the “Biggest ever retrospective of David Hockney’s work” (BBC) has arrived to Tate Britain, and as he is one of my favorite artist, I set a painting project that is very much inspired by Hockney’s landscapes. We have also looked at some landscapes throughout the history of paintings, from Constable, Monet to Hockney and beyond…so here are the kids exquisite paintings as always!!!!!!
Under overwhelming festive pressure I buckled…here are the 2016 Christmas cards kids made. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all! Love and Peace :)x
Last two weeks were about detailed observations, realism and trying hard to capture what we see…challenge was how to move creations towards more abstract pattern and color. Beautiful peaces created, mostly finished…some might need a little bit more work, or not! It’s up to the artists to decide. Love it!!!
Inspired by Frank Aubracht and using charcoal, white chalk and rubber, the kids tackled recreating a portrait, and a landscape. They worked on them upside down observing the values (light, dark, middle grey) rather then being overwhelmed with the original…the results are stunning, moody, and never would one say they were done by 8,9,10 and 11 year olds! Masterpieces from first class artists!
