This is a list of links to our blog, where we have spent a year enjoying art workshops with another family. I’ll preface this by saying that along with our art, we were grieving for our son and some of the posts are about that as well as drawing and painting. During the early sessions we were learning how to work and winging it; later on, they become more structured.
This was the day which inspired the sessions.
Our first go; encouraging the kids t explore the medium and get used to some directed art work.
Getting the kids outside and out of their comfort zone to try art outside.
Using different media to copy book art and creating ‘modern art’ mosaics.
Our first ‘structured day’ and a huge success.
Exploring shading, colour, paper types and texture using “Starry Night”.
Paper Picasso Portraits for kids.
A very successful set of projects looking at shape, colour and pattern.
Tissue art, polymer clay abstract shapes and colour.
Three projects, in tissue, card and polymer clay, to remember the fallen.
Moving on to a new slant, we looked a cityscapes and skylines in card collage, wax resist and pencil drawing.
Two sessions; wax rubbing texture pictures and tissue cut out skylines and mixing and blending colours on Valentines Day.
Learning to draw in 3D in preparation for more detailed building drawings, plus drawing 3D shapes and houses.
