Upcycled Collage

Upcycled Still Life Collages

For this lesson we looked at images from

several UK contemporary artists to draw

inspiration. Previously the classes created

mixed media abstract pieces focused on color.

Using similar techniques, we concentrated

on creating a Still Life composition with

upcycled materials and patterns.

They are really growing in confidence and

design skills. I am so pleased with the younger

students that joined the class this year.......

They are very independent now and feel

comfortable working alongside the established

older students. They approach the projects

with such an open attitude and are so good

at exploring the materials to create

very individual and unique pieces. I hope

that parents are framing some of these.

The results from this lesson are so lovely.

 Week One: Cave Paintings

It has been an eventful week in our Art Literacy class. We have been all around the world.  I would like to thank all of my wonderful students for their great efforts. We began with the story of the discovery of the discovery of cave paintings in Lascaux,  France  and also looked at images from  Spain , where the oldest known cave paintings have been found,  in the cave called El Castillo. The prehistoric dots and crimson hand stencils are now the world's oldest known cave art that dates more than 40,800 years old.
