Mixed Media Project 2nd week

As we can see from the images below, everyone has been very busy, there is lots of evidence of extensive experimentation (playing!) with the media types. Some of the group wanted to complete their pastel-only paintings and these also show great progress and innovation. 
Next week there is no class (20 October) and when we come back we will be starting our new project: crowd scenes. The previous posting on this blog explains a bit more about the new project.

Crowd Scene Project

We are starting a new project which is about painting crowd scenes. Before the next class on 27 October, learners have two things they can do at home - if they have time: continue and complete their current projects, and, start their research for the crowd scene painting. 


In the Resource Page on the right entitled "Crowd Scenes" there are some examples of the wide range of approaches to this topic. We will talk in more detail about the options used by artists in our next class. Learners can also look for other artists crowd scenes as part of their research.


Here is a guide for the crowd scene project with some tips, click on the page below and it will take you to the full document where you can download or print it. It is 2 pages long.

Pastel Painting - combined media

This week we started our new whole-class project: combining pastel painting and water-based paint (mixed media). After a demonstration of the techniques and the various water based paint media that could be combined with the soft pastels most of the group started preparing their images with a painted under image. Some wanted to complete their pastel paintings from the last project. 
As you can see from the images below, there is great experimentation taking place with some early stunning results. There is also evidence of the huge fun it is to be free to experiment in this creative way. The full image is followed by a detail of each piece of work including those at the very earliest stage of development.  To enlarge an image click on it.
