‘What’s a memory?’ asked Wilfred Gordon…

‘Its something you remember’ said his Father. But Wilfred Gordon wanted to know more,……

Our¬†final project in our Autumn Adventures in Art series was designed to ‘put the student in the picture’ by connecting him/her to their work in a personal way. By looking at ways to ‘represent’ themselves using memories and nature references, they produced unique work and re-enforced the value in their own form of expression, their own memories, their own style.

I have just loved meandering through the past six weeks with artistic-intension together with a wonderful bunch of enthusiastic students. They were polite, inspired, wildly creative and an absolute joy to teach!

Looking forward to more adventures next term – thanks Riverbend Books and Cafe!

This week our theme was NOTICING and as we began our introduction to printmaking inspired by a bunch of equally ‘wild’ and imaginative books, students played with printing texture and layers, background and foreground, ghost prints and more!

Students took home a gorgeous ‘mothers day’ print of their favourite autumn leaf adjacent our custom quote and we gathered all their experimental printmaking into their folio’s for collation over the 6 week series!

Next week’s theme is IMAGINATION: the ‘Magic Faraway Tree’ by Enid Blyton¬†and ‘Stuck’ by Oliver Jeffers will project us into our experiments with mono printing and etching. Can’t wait!
