Easter Workshops

We had a lovely couple of days of workshops over the Easter holidays! Here’s what we got up to…

Rockin’ Robots

We designed some fantastic robot characters using cardboard, gold acrylic paint, metallic paper and other bits and pieces!

Leaf Collages

Visiting artist Clare (Paisley Art) showed us how to make vibrant mixed media artwork, using leaf shapes as inspiration. We used inks to create a background then chose different papers to work on top. We got some lovely results!

Clare runs adult art classes too- please use this link to her Facebook page Paisley Art for details.

 

Drawing with Ink and Twigs

Clare showed us how to use twigs dipped in ink to draw expressive birds! 

 

Dreamcatchers

Visiting artist Rose showed us how to weave our own dreamcatchers using willow, yarn and thread. We incorporated beads and feathers into our designs. It was a fiddly job but the results were great!

You can find out more about Rose’s art on her website.

 

Paper Flowers

Rose showed us how to create lots of different kinds of flowers using tissue paper. We made them into headdresses!

 

Fluttering Butterflies

We painted colourful backgrounds onto MDF using acrylic paint, before adding paper butterflies!
