Our first Friday Art Club at Ibbison Community Center.
Thank you to everyone who attended despite the cold weather.
Easing our group in with paper flower making we had a great time and lots of laughter. Brilliant.
Looking forward to next weeks collage session. The following week will be 3D collage from a still life.
On Friday afternoon we worked with year 4.
Each pupil picked out an unusually named plant or flower from the ‘mystery bag’ and then drew a design of how they thought the plant might look. We invited the young people to research the origins of the plants and to look up how the plant really looked, after they had created these amazing fantasy plants using recycled materials.
These are just a small sample of all the plants created.
This project is supported by the local community and funded by LeftCoast as part of their ‘Growing People’ initiative in Blackpool
