A couple more weeks of Kids Shed combined

At Kids Shed the artists work on their own individual projects. These might be similar to others, or quite different. Em, our wonderful volunteer, has also brought her school projects in, this has been very inspirational. Here are a few weeks worth of images of Kids Shed artwork. 

C was away from group last week, on a family holiday to Queensland.
She brought in a beautiful shell to show me. 
I loved the intricacy of patterns and suggested she might want to draw it, which she did. 

I was busy out in the big space with S and A assisting with papier mache of their 3-D works. 
When I returned to our 'office space' I discovered more than one dragon illustrated. 

V is working on a new doll for a school project.
She told me this week that she is going to ask permission from her teacher, to enter this creative piece as her 'art entry', as this is her preferred art modality. Visual art was expected but V is developing her own style as an artist AND this is what she does.  I was very proud of her making this statement. I support you all the way in this decision V, your dolls are sensational. 

 F and C have a strong interest in drawing. 

The week before whilst having a cup of tea in the backyard I noticed beautiful shadows formed by the winter sunshine. I snapped a few photos of the outside chair and it's shadow, the clothes line and it's shadow. My dog also thought I should take a photo of her, sitting in her 'best position' to impress me. To my surprise there was a perfectly cast shadow. I took the photos in for F and C, plus some charcoal. They both drew Pup, one focusing on her and her shadow, the other on her shadow alone. I think they are striking. 

F enjoyed the charcoal. 

S's papier mache doll starts to take form. 

One week on and dry she is ready for clothes. 

K starts a new project, building a house. 
She comes prepared with furnishings. Every element of family living is considered, especially when it comes to the care of a baby. 

A bit of time at the end of the day to draw on a 'different canvas'.
Em soon discovered which coloured inks washed out the quickest. 

Sadly I don't have photos of the final group illustrations on Em's arms, however they were quite wonderful.
