back to school

For me and studio pal Nicola Killen much of this summer has been spent preparing for Art Club and figuring out the exercises we wanted the children to do. This meant a lot of playing with materials and mark-making, I felt like I’d gone back to my student days where experimentation was the norm. It was great! Here are some of the results of using tissue and coloured pencil for collage week and monoprint for printing week.

  1. Love the Moggie screenprints, and the monoprint’s really nice too.
    Well done on what looks like a really rewarding Summer – the workshops looked like oodles of fun too. Looking forward to seeing what’s next 🙂 x

  2. Thanks Neil 🙂 I loved doing a bit of printing for a change. You should have a play sometime – the screenprinting was a bit involved but the monoprint is so easy to do. I used Nicola’s method where you paint onto a registered piece of paper and press the image down after each new line is added to create the print. It’s a bit of a surprise what comes out which is what makes it so much fun!
