Last week, TAS students have been creating abstract compositions based on an adjective which portray a feeling/motion. This activity was inspired by the art movement that emerged in New York City during 1940s-1950s, closely related to abstract expressionism with famous and popular works from artists such as Kenneth Noland, Frank Stella and Kadinsky.

We had a really fruitful session with lots of amazing artworks and creativity.

We invited all of the parents of our students to come to our free session, enjoy wine and snacks then produce some lino-cut artworks. Although most of them said that this was the first time they created something, we could not believe because of the amazing results. 

Let's look back of some photos of our first time ever Painting Night. Watch out for our up-coming event in March 2018!

Creating a head piece in a cubist portrait style is a great way to introduce young artists to the radical art movement whilst teaching them about combining 2D and 3D forms. Cubism is one of the most influential art styles of the early twentieth century, challenging conventional forms of representation - such as perspective - which had been the rule since the Renaissance.

A fun and expressive way to draw is with indian ink and bamboo skewers.  Students are always excited to see the magic of how black puddles and patterns spread like spidery magic across wet paper. It encourages students to focus on linework and tone whilst being bold with their mark making as there is no erasing!

We chose a menagerie of interesting and unusual animals, with geometric shells, intricate overlapping scales and silk...

Reflecting back to Egyptian era style and fashion, we decided to create our very own pair of Egyptian sandals.  Taking inspiration from the cloths shoes and jewelry of the Egyptians. We first created our sandal structure by drawing around our shoes onto cardboard to make sure we had the exact shoe size for each student. From there we cut out those shapes and added our shoe structure on top, so they could be worn for fun.

Taking steps through the Egyptian era we came to one of the most interesting elements: Mummies and Tombs. For this project we created our tombs with clay, building up the basic shape with the coiling technique. Then we moved on to refine the shapes and details of the clay work with our tools.

Each student approached and developed their mummies with their own personal style and some even had stories about the life their mummies...

Taking our artists through history with our Summer Camp Syllabus we have covered many eras of time. One of our top lessons so far was walking them through the Egyptian era all the way back to wall murals, symbols, ancient mummies and tombs.

To fully immerse our little artists into the project, we felt it called for some interactive ways of working. So, to create our wall murals; we let them draw and paint directly onto the Vin...
