Art for Kids
Beautiful hand collaged birds created by 7 & 8 year olds in a recent workshop I facilitated for a large-scale commission piece.
I am now tracing the drawings on Illustrator (40 of them by hand) to create a large composition print which will go up in a public space (I’ll reveal all after next Wednesday).
But I just think the children’s work looks so lovely and the crisp lines created from tracing give them a really graphic, clean edge..I’m so happy and excited by the unfolding results!
Every Saturday (until next week as we finish for the year) I teach Art on the Saturday school programme for Newham based 8-12 year olds at Rosetta Art Centre.
We’ve had a fantastically rich six months, covering ceramics, drawing, painting techniques, mixed media, ceramics and last Saturday had splendid results; we worked as a team and painted large-scale Aboriginal inspired animals onto a banner.
I think it looks fantastic…
