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 look at the art of Arcimboldo which will link with the harvest theme coming in October. We will also test our drawing skills by drawing fruit and vegetables. You will need a selection of fruit and vegetables to draw and create images with and some coloured pencils. You can look at some designs made from fruit and vegetables in the article on nature art/ mandalas in our garden themed resources.
Why not take a look at our Drawing a Day challenge for October?
