Animal Sculptures & Mixed Media Canvases
February has seen two trips to WI Denman College. At the beginning of the month we explored Mixed Media canvas techniques, including crackle effects, structure paste through stencils, applied mixed media, adding texture & dry brushing. We even raided the tea bags & tea stirrers to add to our artworks!
Each student produced 3 canvases & they were all very different in style & colour. At the end of the course, we set up a 'pop-up' art gallery & invited the students attending the other courses at WI Denman College to come & see the work.
Then in mid-February it was back to WI Denman College for a very different course - Animal Sculpture. By the end of the weekend we had 5 Highland Cattle & two sheep, each with their own personality. Lots of fun & some great results all round.
