Wed 21st October 4-5pm
Using paper and our imagination, we will make our own decorative papers and experiment with a range of approaches to collage. Let's snip, tear, layer and stick to create our own collaged mixed media characters and abstract landscapes.
Wed 28th October 4-5pm
Words matter! Art can be made using words and words can be art. Join us as we discover how artists use typography in their work, how letters can transform into a building or a person. We will draw, write and play with words choosing words that matter most to us.
Notes from Nature
Wed 4th November 4-5pm
As observers of nature will use the shapes, patterns and textures that we find to create mixed media art. We will discover the hidden meanings of the trees we see around us and then share the messages we hear from nature by creating our own mini art installations.
You & Me - Conversations with Objects
Wed 11th November 4-5pm
Have you ever thought what a spoon might say to you or what question you would ask a spoon? Join us as we discover the work of surrealist artists that use 'found objects' as sources of inspiration. Using mixed media techniques, we will record our conversations with everyday objects to make art.
