A few pics from the last art session (swipe left). We started off doing some timed continuous line exercises to loosen up a bit before having a go trace monoprinting. As always there were some fab outcomes - such a talented bunch! Looking forward to getting to grips with tints and tone next Tuesday.
Add a personal touch this Christmas and come along to print your own Linocut Christmas cards.
I will be available all day (10am - 5pm), at the Broughton Gifford Scout Hut on Saturday 24th November, to give advice and guidance, so pop in at your convenience.
You are welcome to stay as long as you like but as a guide I would recommend allowing 2-3 hours to carve your plate and print 5-10 cards.
All materials will be provided and a print press will be available to ensure you create the highest quality prints.
To cover the cost of the hall hire and materials I will be charging £15 and selling blank cards at £3 for a pack of 5.
The session is suitable for all abilities and anyone over the age of 13.
If you fancy taking part then please just give me a rough idea of the quantity of cards you intend to print so that I can make sure that I’ve got enough in stock.
feature this Wednesday is Vanessa German!! Vanessa is a visual and performance artist based in the Pittsburgh neighborhood of Homewood. Homewood is the community that is the driving force behind German’s powerful performance work, and whose cast-off relics form the language of her copiously embellished sculptures. As a citizen artist, German explores the power of art and love as a transformative force in the dynamic cultural ecosystem of communities and neighborhoods. She is the founder of Love Front Porch and the ARThouse, a community arts initiative for the children of Homewood. (bio from Pavel Zoubok Fine Art)

We got the print press out at yesterday’s Art Session. Everyone did really well! It’s amazing what they achieved in only 2 hours. If you’re interested in finding out more about the sessions then dm me your email address and I’ll forward you the details.
My upcoming exhibition at the Southville Arts Center in Bristol. Called, "My Eclectic Mix", as it will include a selection of my different styles. Includes Landscape, portrait, biological and abstract pattern and flower painting. All original work and prints displayed will be for sale as well as prints and coasters at the desk shop. Hope you can pop in. Nov 6th until the 30th.
On the 30th September a few of our friends came together for some painting near Allen Gardens to help clean up a problem spot near Daniel Gilbert House, where Look Ahead provide support to those who need it most. We're hoping we can help by cleaning up their surroundings so they know people do care and they are an important part of the area.
With the support of @trafikgraphics @jaycaes @thisones_art
