Just a quick blog to showcase some of the Easter term projects at the Art school. What a wonderful group of students we have had. Their vision and skill never cease to amaze me. So many laughs too. Great personalities have made it feel more like a social event than a class at times. This half term's theme was portraiture-a challenge for many who found looking at their own reflections in a mirror week after week a challenge. Strange how we are our own worse critics but with time everyone came to a comfortable agreement with their reflected image and an assortment of results ensued. Take a look.
Pottery project which introduced the medium to most students. Pinch pot jars with lids decorated with slip glaze.

and finally, a party for a group of ladies was held in the studio in which chalk pastel drawings of spring flowers was the theme. Cupcakes to Go supplied us with bespoke, flower themed cakes for the occassion. They were absolutely delicious!
