More workshops took place this week at Tarleton Acadamy, as part of my ongoing work for the Chapel Gallery!
We begun to investigate the theme of silhouettes further using architectural forms gathered from the gallery, rather than the figures we looked at last week.
I am really pleased with the body of work beginning to take shape. Lovely sense of layering and framing starting to develop using our primary source material from the Chapel Gallery. Some students re-worked their collages from the first workshop at the gallery, others used elements as a starting point. Repetition of forms and shapes are creating some interesting rhythmic patterns. Wonderful bold flat colour contrasting with some sophisticated media handling – great stuff!
Next week we will be starting to take our ideas off paper and introducing transparency, translucency and opacity to our work. Watch this space…………
