INK + COLLAGE - MAKING SHAPES

My kids have always been very interested in art, it now shapes how they think about the world around them and use art to tell stories and describe their worlds. It also means that on a quiet day at home they are never short of things to do. I've packed them a box of various tools, paper and bits and pieces for them to go to whenever they want and it has worked wonders! My kids love collage and painting, making shapes and putting those together to create their artwork so I'll be putting together workshops for these activities. Allowing kids to create shapes and explore working with inky watercolours and creating collage. Sign up to my mailing list to be notified of dates.

I'm very excited to announce I've partnered up with LITTLE ART FORMS, to bring you a unique card making workshop.

In this workshop children will be invited to print Little Art Forms shapes over the top of my own elegant and ethereal inked drawings.

We will start the workshop by studying and exploring my inked artwork. Following this participants will be invited to select and crop their chosen backgrounds to work with, and then the printing will begin.

Using lino prints, children will have the opportunity to choose a selection of the Little Art Forms shapes to work with and to create an animated stack image over the top of my work.  

Through bringing together two contrasting visual languages, that of Little Art Forms and myself, we can enter a new creative venture together, where ideas and creative process can be exchanged. We look forward to seeing those who can make it soon.

10:00am - 11:00am
