I did two main projects with children last year – the village church in Chilton and the village shop in East Hendred.
I did the village church with my granddaughters and three other little girls, starting in Winter and finishing in Spring. (They monoprinted the paper and did rubbings of the headstones).
and here they are, hard at work…
With Rose’s Gaudi Barcelona fantasy castle (the village church?) above.
Then I was asked to do art with year 6 at East Hendred. We began with preparing canvasses for the painting (I am currently doing my own version of this village shop, but I doubt whether I can evoke this amount of charm.
I completed my four little artbooks, three on colour and one on tone and texture
with the centrepage of book 3 copied from Isabel’s paintbox.
and lastly a little calligraphy book for 10 year olds and upwards.What a bookish year!
