TRANSFORM IT – PLASTIC ANIMALS & ACRYLIC

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! 🙁

MONOCHROMATIC COLOURS

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!

LANDSCAPE INSPIRED BY DAVID HOCKNEY

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!!!!!!

CHRISTMAS COLLAGE

MIX MEDIA – REAL TO ABSTRACT

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!!!

TONE OR VALUE

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!

AFRICAN MASK

This project is always very welcomed by kids as final piece looks so so spectacular. Doesn’t necessarily look like we used cooking foil, cardboard, glue, and shoe polish!!!! Ready to be framed and adored by masses…go kids go!!!!

DEEP DEEP WOODS – COLLAGE

Today was our last Art Club class and we had to say goodbye to some artists as they are off to secondary schools next year. I will miss them very much as most of them have been part of this adventure from the very beginning! I hope they continue to grow and express themselves through their art. So everybody have a great summer and see you soon! 🙂
