Today - making marks and self portraits

A fun day today. Thank you Linda.
Sorry - forgot to take photos.
There was lots of silence - concentration.
Plus lots of laughter - evaluating the results.

Next session....
The challenge is to develop a self portrait into textiles.

For those who missed today and who are going to be there in June,
come prepared to do a quick self portrait - not scary, loads of fun.
Then follow up with developing your self portrait into textiles.

More information nearer to the June session.

Thanks again for today Linda.

Monday 9th May 2016

This is what we will need for our Mark Making and self portraits with Linda:

Sketch pad A4 for the first studies in mark making and A3 would be easier for the self portrait , or sheets of paper .
Charcoal in pencil or stick form , thick and thin ,
Any coloured pencils , oil pastels felt pens or other mark making tools you have and would like to try out .
Wipes to clean hands after charcoal .
A few sheets of newspaper or cover for table .

As there are so few of us next meeting , if anyone has any other experimental drawing ideas , please share . The cost will probably be £7.

Looking forward to seeing you there................
