Art Projects:

WEEK 1 - CITYSCAPE PRINTMAKING

You will create a collagraph printing plate using recycled cardboard and make a detailed pastoral or cityscape setting. Explore layered cut-out details, patterns, repetition, and geometric/organic shapes. Your will then transfer your design composition using the timeless technique and tools of collagraph printing. This is a great project to learn and can be used for future printmaking images to frame for gifts or for art card making.

WEEK 2 - COLLAGE PAPER GARDENSCAPE

Create a master garden art piece using classic and advanced paper collage techniques. Students will create a multi-layered nature inspired collage on canvas board using non-representational shapes to achieve a harmonious garden scene of delight.  Emphasis will be on transparent colour composition and layering effects, balance, symmetry/asymmetry, colour blending, and organic shapes.

WEEK 3 - WAX RESIST “PATTERN PLAY” PASTEL BATIK

Create stunning faux batik art using pastels enhanced with carving. Students will learn about pattern and repetition, layering and dynamic patterned design. By brushing a transparent India ink wash over the pastel, a resist is created ending with a beautiful faux batik finish.

WEEK 4 - ALEXANDER CALDER INSPIRED KINETIC ART

In this session we will create Kinetic Sculptures and learn about Moving Art and American artist Alexander Calder. Keeping in theme with Calder’s work, students will create a sculptural mobile inspired by his work. Emphasis will be on movement, colour, size variation and “drawing in space” utilizing Calder’s concept of line and sculpture to create modern mobile shapes. This is a dynamic and fun project!
