Winner - Promoting Artistic Process
Some exercise examples
Line – younger kids did continous abstract lines using charcoal sticks in both hands simultaneously
younger batch used a paintbrush to make an abstract contious line of pait which then turned into a map by adding small details with sketch pen
Older batch did continous line portraits while looking at a print out of a face. The portrait was done using pencil and then outlined in sketch pen and some parts were coloured with colour pencil
Texture – Older students did the exquisite corpse project -‐ an imaginary animal with the head of one animal, body of another and feet or tail if a third and they collaged or coloured it with a focus on texture -‐ they used bits of paper, dals etc to create texture
Shape and Form – Older students drew an outline of an animal -‐ rhino, snake etc to see its shape -‐ then using recycles materials like sponge, pipes, rope etc they created the same animal in 3 D to explore form -‐ for this session we invited a guest teacher the artist Ravindran to help the students understand form.
Space — younger batch were given a big letter (the first initial of their name) on water colour paper. They divided the background into 4 and used oil pastels and water colour to pattern each section leaving only the letter white. We talked about positive and negative space
