I love painting portraits and this time I remembered to photograph the process.

Saturday Workshop

Wow, the first Saturday afternoon art workshop was definitely brimming with busy creative energy.  So many projects began and will continue to develop over the next few weeks.  Loved sharing ideas and came home with my mind buzzing with more projects.

The art workshops were full before the posters went out! So in January Burton Latimer will have a Saturday morning art workshop too.  Registration is now open and new posters going out.

This term we are learning about Andy Goldsworthy
and Alberto Giacommeti  and creating our own versions of their work.

                                                                       by C - Week 1

We started the skeletons for our own Alberto Giacometti sculptures using recycled card, wire and foil.

Our first exhibition is on 4th December. A chance to open our doors and share the artwork with the local community (and on the same day as the Farmer's Market - double bonus).   We will be fundraising by selling teas, coffee, cakes and goodies. 

In the afternoon our session will run as normal with a private viewing for children and their families and friends to share and try out their drawing skills.

We hope to purchase some easels and our budding artists and photographers would really like a camera and laptop too. Aim high :)
