Big Art Adventures | 8-12 years
Inspired by Nature with Mary Kayser

Saturday > 10:30am – 12:30pm or 2 – 4pm

23 February – 30 March

Imagine, draw, design, paint and make your own hard or soft sculpture. Along the journey be inspired by patterns and shapes seen in nature, the animal kingdom, some endangered species and by artists that are inspired by the natural world. Draw in your own way as well as using a few simple drawing ‘recipes’. Experiment with blending colours; explore the colour wheel and mess with paint. Imagine, design, measure and plan what you would like to make in 3D. Model clay and or work with fabric to create your 3D sculpture.

Week 1 (23 Feb)
Explore patterns and shapes; use a few simple drawing ‘recipes’ for drawing animals, then play with smudging, blending pencil marks, chalk pastels and charcoal on your choice of paper or card.

Week 2 (2 Mar)
Discover working with clay. Learn to model a hollow formed animal, from nature or from your imagination. Colour it if you like.

Weeks 3 & 4 (9 Mar & 16 Mar)
Examine the colour wheel and experiment with mixing and blending paint colours. Design, measure and plan what you would like to make for your painted soft sculpture in fabric/canvas. Create your stencil reference and colour with paint. Prepare and undercoat your canvas. Once dry, paint both sides with your animal, character or design.

Week 5 (23 Mar)
Embellish your soft sculpture with a variety of bits and pieces. When both surfaces are finished, hand-sew together, fill and complete; a sewing machine may be at hand to assist if needed.

Week 6 (30 Mar)
Completion of work and setup for the end of term exhibition.
