30 days of creativity – Day 21 – Printing at the Mshed

30 day creativity challenge Day  21, Mshed Printing Workshop

Occasionally I get to do workshops at the Mshed in Bristol. The picture of me on my design site –  www.nakedwebsite.co.uk is from the Mshed, we spent a happy couple of hours throwing string around.

The theme of todays workshop was memories of Bristol. Since I’m not Bristolian and we live in the Mogadishu quarter I don’t have nice memories about our area. But I do like Cabot Tower, which you can helpfully see from the window of the Mshed studio.

One of the good things about Cabot Tower is the ice cream truck – Vee Double Moo which sells the most incredible salted caramel topped ice cream.

My 10 year old printed ice cream, with a random turtle on top and then made patterns out of turtles.

I printed the tower and the greenery around it.

And if you want to join in we have a Facebook group – https://www.facebook.com/groups/154085144775381/
Over on Crackbook a bunch of us are going to be working through Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain: A Course in Enhancing Creativity and Artistic Confidence

The first exercises are to draw a self portrait, your hand and something else I can’t remember so you can see improvement. Then you move onto drawing a vase from a silhouette. You can see the vase exercise here – http://drawright.com/vaceface.htm.

The plan is to do an exercise every Sunday from the book.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

30 days of creativity – Day 20 – Collaborative Work

30 day creativity challenge Day  20, painting with a 10 year old.

A friend was decluttering a canvas so we got out the oil paints and painted over it. Then my son used some thingy on the camera to make a collage.

I got into smudging the colours together, he did some intricate little pictures influence, the precocious brat says, by Munch.

From top left on the top he has named them

Hell is in us all

Journey to the Underworld

The God of Destruction

Then on the bottom row

Cry

Terror

Ahh, happy childhood memories.
