Arts Award- Week 2

Cyan Class

Our Explore Arts Award group have been looking at the work of Bedford based painter and printmaker Carry Akroyd, and in particular her landscapes (see examples below). This week we began our own pieces inspired by Akroyd’s paintings, using oil paint on canvas. We learnt how to thin the paint using turpentine, and how to blend colours on the canvas. We will be continuing with our paintings next week.

You can see more examples of Carry Akroyd’s work on her website.
