The brief from the gallery for this month was,
Through the Trees: Tiny people in the rain forest; works in paint
WORKSHOP CONTENT: Eden’s Landing artist Mark Davey's exhibition Through the Trees demonstrates a vibrant, energetic series of textured abstract paintings based on what would be experienced if peering through trees into a rainforest.
Children will be introduced to the technique of 'masking areas' when creating in acrylic paints. They will have fun creating their own rain forest inspired artworks.
Viewing the exhibition. I totally loved these paintings and could really see them hanging on our walls. There were various colours (not only black backgrounds) the blue was gorgeous. The children were all really intrigued by this art work as well and sat for quite some time discussing it with the lady from the gallery.
From their we made our way into the workshop room so the children could begin their pieces, inspired by the artwork they just saw.Masking up
