FAB and FUN. No previous knowledge or experience needed.
Each week we will look at a different artist or style and there will be a short, simple activity based on related techniques. This group meets online using Zoom.
The aim is to enjoy meditative art activities and explore simple techniques related to an art theme rather than enhancing or developing advanced art skills. There may be opportunities to stimulate ideas for further artwork to be carried out after the session according to individual needs.
Most sessions will relate in some way to activities on our Living Well resource pages which may offer the opportunity for individuals to display work created after the session in the resource page galleries, should they wish to.
Each week Art Club will be a stand alone drop in based on a theme, with more specific living well art courses planned for future Fridays. (Themes may be subject to change)
This session we will be looking at land art/ nature art; including artists Richard Long, Robert Smithson, Andy Goldsworthy and Nils Udo. You will need a selection of sticks, stones, leaves, flower heads or fruit and vegetables to make patterns or mandalas with. We will also look at drawing with chalk and charcoal on white, black or brown backgrounds (brown wrapping/parcel paper is good or even the card from the inside of food packaging) A black pen or biro can also be used to make marks on the backgrounds. This project will link with our garden theme and a resource theme for Harvest due in October.
