Workshops and Activities
I would like to work with the teacher to decide what key point or theme he or she would like to work towards. Involving the students in preparation of the supports for the work to be done, go over color theory according to the age groups. Creation of art project followed by a showing of the work in class room or hallway. The ideas below are projects that I have done is the past which have been successful are the following: • Creating paper quilts for display by using watercolor monotypes or collagraphs. Choosing photos brought in by students. Cut image in four, each student creates a monotype/painting/collage of each quarter and assembles them on a large canvas. They use • Choose a well known artist and being inspiring by his works in terms of color and form. • Basics painting and drawing skills, with a group art show at the end. • Create creative drawings, find an image within the drawing and write a poem or a short paragraph or two in connection with the drawing.
