Free Zoom Art – Skulls And Sticking

23 Feb

I’m an educator as well as an artist and I run a lot of art sessions and workshops, on Zoom in these pandemic times. I have a free one coming up, “Get Sticky With Scribblah”, organised by GS Artists in Swansea and the 9to90 Creative Community, on Saturday (27th February) 10.30 – 12.30 UTC. Click here to find out how to register. There’s no cost but places are limited so book early. You don’t need anything special, just a sheet of paper, a pencil or ballpoint pen, a glue stick (or PVA glue) and some coloured papers – junk mail or magazines are fine. Collage is a very low cost way to be creative and I’ll be showing people how to draw a skull from scratch and then we’ll decorate it with cutting, ripping and sticking. Here’s one I’m half way through (above).

I’ll also be doing a brief illustrated talk about the history of collage and the use of skulls in art. It’s suitable for beginners to experts and ages 9 to 90 (+), would be lovely to see you there.

 

A Chance To Own One Of My Artworks

I have some small screenprints for sale, inspired by my drawings of the taxidermy collection at Swansea Museum. I have given these antique artifacts a modern twist by combining them with images of rubbish – old fruit nets, bubble wrap and plastic – highlighting the problem of human pollution and how it affects wildlife.

20 percent of the cost of each screenprint sold goes to support Swansea Print Workshop, which receives no public funding.
