Attached picture from todays (saturday 14th aug 2010) art workshop at the sheppey healthy living centre, a parent and child special. The children and their creative mums, dads and nans made glass painting pictures, first an A4 sized picture of their hand - then giant A1 (window) sized creations. Everyone worked very hard using the special glass paints on large sheets of Acrylic. There were children of all ages from 3 year old twins upwards. Over the four hour session over 20 children came to paint -The class was tutored by regular Art workshop leader Richard Jeferies.
Dont forget our next we are always running new workshops and if there is a subject you want to please contact Sheppey matters at sheppey healthy living centre.
Bit of a back to front posting, this one should have been last week. I was on-duty as Judy in our live action version of punch and judy - during the breaks i sketch painted some of our street theatre group in their wonderful costumes from a bygone era (more about them here - http://www.bigfish.org.uk/newbigfish/
each sketch completed using watercolours was no more than 5mins in order to let my sitters escape.

Assemblage is an artistic process in which a three-dimensional artistic composition is made from putting together found objects
The best way to approach an assemblage is to make it personal, spend some time collecting thing all manner of items/things/bits an bobs. Then lay them out roughly in groups. An idea of the box frame shape should now come to mind. Use colored papers/magazine pages or paints to decorate the box. Then fix the items within. Try an arrange them to tell a theme or story.
Monday i had a little interview about my classes etc on BRFM our local radio station. You can hear the highlights on the you-tube link, hope you enjoy.
