Characters and Beastie

Following on from the previous workshops, looking to the artist, Miró for inspiration, we took another process used by some Surrealist artists: ‘automatic drawing’,  but for this workshop, we called it ‘taking a line for a walk’. By letting the pencil freely draw loops and doodles, the children created a series of patterns and shapes on their paper. They then looked at each shape they had made, and used their imagination to turn these in to characters with different facial expressions or any kind of creature or beasties.

A little bit of silly fun for a Friday!!

All artworks are made by children age 7 – 12yrs

Dates for future on-line workshops are on my How to Book page
