Enjoyed a busy workshop - twice - on Friday last week
It was the theme of Surfaces: Pattern and Texture
Students looked for patterns in the art and artefacts of the collection at SCVA, making lovely well observed drawings of details and repeated shapes
Next they used their pencils and erasers only to create the different textures on the surfaces of items they found
Once back in the studio, the students worked in pairs to double up and 're-draw' their shapes in collage, creating interesting textures
Finally they worked individually to make rubbings of their textures - back to monochrome after all that colour!
They chose their collages that transposed to rubbings with the most interesting and successful results and repeated these to create patterns through texture
