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…
On Friday I taught a one day workshop for 6 -14 year olds at CGP Gallery.
The theme was ‘Urban Wildlife’ – I started by getting the children to draw their school playground in fine-line pens, then make animals/creatures out of coloured paper and magazine imagery which they imagine visit their school during the School holidays and what they might get up to
Tea parties for foxes and squirrels came to mind…
Yes this was my version
This workshop planning is hard work 😉 ………..
This is one reason I love teaching children, they’re so creative and free!
