I’m back in my hometown of Bristol for a few days over Easter….with a pile of admin…………..
Today I thought I’d escape the paperwork and run through some new ideas I wish to try out for future Art classes; so I invited some friends around to have a trial lesson run through.
The students started with a one minute continuous line drawing and went on to create a series of works using oil pastel and a final large scale drawing using pastel, ink and collaged paper and photographs.
Unfortunately being away from home I have limited resources so we had to run through with ink pastels and coloured paper/magazine articles (in my lessons there’s a vast selection of inks paints as well).
Teaching always leaves me feeling most inspired; advising people helps develop my own thoughts and concepts as well as seeing how my students interpret tasks using their own, unique handwriting.
A great start to the day!
Matrioshka Dolls were the subject matter for the initial drawings (two minute continuous line drawings with a further ten minutes to colour and finalise).
Students proceed to invent their own characters taking inspiration from previous drawings and techniques learnt
Finalised Illustration created using Oil pastels, collaged photographs and previous drawings as print.
