An Autumn workshop & a short break

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I ran an Autumn workshop with an after school art group in a local primary school. There was quite a large age range so it was interesting to see the different results.

I managed to take a few photos as I led the children through the project:

They all had some great results and took a lovely picture home to their parents!

As this post’s title suggests, I’m off for a short break with my OH for a few days. We are off to Yorkshire again, one of our favourite places.

It will be time to relax properly and recharge my batteries before the Christmas rush. I have a Daily Read post scheduled for Friday so this blog won’t be left alone too long!

Have a lovely rest of the week xo

Some workshop goodness

Over the last couple of weeks I have been very busy leading Christmas Card workshops for local Primary schools. It is so ┬ámuch fun sharing my enthusiasm for drawing and design with groups of young people. In these particular workshops I focus on taking them step-by-step through how to draw various wintery animals before they begin their final artwork. This artwork is then sent home to parents with the option for them to purchase their child’s artwork on professionally printed christmas cards.

Here are just a few of the many orders I have received back already:

This afternoon I am leading an Autumn workshop in which I will be showing the children how to make one of these 3D hedgehog pictures:

Can’t wait to see the results!
