Art for Children
A few lovely things made by children in my lessons on the Visual Arts Saturday School at Rosetta Art Centre……
Self portrait mono-type
Three colour Mono-type
Continuous line, left handed and timed drawings were taken to create an abstract Artwork from the gallery, these images were then traced to create a three colour mono type….
T-Shirt portrait prints
Students worked in a group to make a background pattern/ resist from collaged paper and masking tape which they screen printed onto their T-Shirt, then used a stencil created from a self portrait session to print over the background pattern…
Saturday is the last ‘Fashion & Character Illustration’ Class (8-11 year olds) at Rosetta Arts for this year – it has been an incredible ten weeks and the work created by the children so diverse.
I teach my students a process and see how they develop the concept into their own piece; this ten week project had to relate to a Fashion Drawing or a new character/super hero.
The images below were an experiment where the students painted a square piece of cotton with white gesso and then drew their characters onto the fabric using oil pastel and acrylic paints….since these photos have been taken I’ve taught them to sew and they’ve been using appliqué onto their Artworks.
We have now photographed all of their artworks from the ten week course and in the final lesson will heat transfer (using heat press) their best works onto tote bags – teaching them possible ideas for development and Surface decoration.
