At tonight’s Pelham Art Club we put the relief print blocks that we’d created last week to the test, creating a wonderful variety of repeating patterns.
We also had some end-of-term Easter fun too, decorating blown eggs.
Artist, Karen Logan, is passionate about printing. She explained three different kinds of print layouts; Block Repeat, Brick Repeat and Half-Drop Repeat.
We then explored what effects we could achieve using different colours and papers, and combining different blocks too.
First everyone put their egg in a safe place and developed designs in their sketchbooks.
Once the sketches were finished, it was time to start making. Very, very gently.
Not all the eggs made it through the creative process in one piece, but those that did were admired by all.
There was just time at the end to do a quick rating of all the activities that we’ve done this term, to help Karen to come up with some marvellous ideas for next.
Have a great Easter break!
