Plenty of sticky tissue paper and glue !

The artists layered the willow frames with white tissue paper and then designed decorations to stick on them out of coloured tissue paper, then put another layer of white tissue paper and hung them up to dry.

Latest from the Active Older People's Group

We are struggling along without our usual leader at present. Best wishes to Sam and  hope you recover soon, we all miss your expert tuition on painting and drawing. Also hugs to his wife Val, keep strong.

Hey Sam, what do you think?

Model Making Demonstration 22.9.14 by Adam


MODEL MAKING DEMONSTRATION BY ADAM

 Adam this week gave the Junior Artists a  model making demonstration this week.   He brought along a model he is currently working on at home and explained to everyone how he has made it.

Adam demonstrated how he puts wire inside his models which are called armatures to enable the completed models to have movement which is especially good when the models are being used for animation purposes.

The model Adam demonstrated with is Rocky from the movie "Chicken Run".


Carole then asked the children to design and draw a character of their own.

Below you can see Carole discussing one of the character's that has been drawn/designed.


Hopefully in the near future all the Junior Artists will able to have a go a making model of their own.

Bridewell and METAL

Fantastic if very tiring trip out to two fantastic independent arts organisations on Merseyside.
The Bridewell on Prescot Street, where 25 artists have their workshop spaces and exhibition space
And
METAL, cosying up to Edge Hill train station.

Thanks to People's Health Trust for making the trips possible.





 We travelled from the depths of the cells, to the rooftops of the Bridewell. The group had a great time quizzing the artists, exploring the artists spaces, letting everyone know what they liked or disliked about the different art techniques, and generally chatting about everything they found. Well done to George, our tour guide, for coping with all the questions. The history of the The Bridewell was fascinating, including its link to 'Boys from The Blackstuff'.



 The group kept Sam and Carole busy with their questions and probing comments about the various types of arts and crafts.

 Thanks to The Bridewell and METAL for making us all so welcome and providing copious amounts of tea, coffee, and biccies.
