Paisley Art Watercolour Course- Week 1

This week we started our watercolour course with our Key Stage 3 and 4 artists! The focus was on experimenting with different techniques, including wet-on-wet, graduated washes and the use of salt. We then looked at examples of paintings by Melbourne based artist Elizabeth Barnett and worked on a painting of flowers in her style. We got some lovely results!

Paisley Art drawing Course- Week 3

This week our Key Stage 3 and 4 artists produced some beautiful mixed media architectural pieces. They worked with carbon copy paper, transferring images from photographs of Peterborough buildings onto coloured paper. They then chose areas of the photo to cut out and collage onto their work, which created some really interesting effects. They also experimented with simple line drawings painted with tea, in the style of artist Sunga Park.
