‘Urban Wildlife’ workshop at CGP Gallery

Posted on

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!

Scratch the Surface….delivered

Posted on

So after months of labour and beading my 60x30inch artwork; ‘Scratch the Surface’ was ready to be exhibited……it was a stressful journey from Canary Wharf to Notting Hill by tube (not to mention the rain and wind when walking from stations) but I’m delighted to say it arrived un-damaged and in one piece; all ready for Debut Contemporary’s February Private View….I can’t wait to see her up!

Colourful Art workshops

Posted on

I absolutely love this colourful, naively drawn artwork created by a year 5 student in my afterschool Mixed Media Art workshop; the students have been drawing a selection of vintage and modern toys from different angles, first using oil pastels, next fluorescent acrylic paints and next week adding in more detail using intricate collage techniques to depict detail, so we will be using a range of processes and skills learned onto one piece for a number of weeks:
