We will draw inspiration from life & imaginations weaving in the seasons, nature, dreams and story. Participants will also get the chance to work on and develop their own projects from home.

Tell me a story

This term we will explore ways art can tell a story.

Week 1 – Feb 16
About Yourself (1)

We will look at the many self portraits Mexican artist Frida Kahlo painted in an exploration of self and identity. Together they tell her story. Following her example we will make our own self portrait, firstly drawing then painting.

Week 3 – Mar 2
about your family, your friends (1)

Marc Chagall lived in Paris but his whimsical, joyful paintings tell the stories of his childhood and youth with his family and friends in a village in rural Russia.

Sketch book

I intend that this course supports the students own creative journey. They should each bring a small sketch book with them, to record and develop their own ideas, dream up their own projects, and practice drawing. Sometimes in the process of art making there is waiting time, perhaps waiting for something to dry, or to take turns in using a particular process or piece of equipment. During these times the student can be using their sketch book.
