Art Challenge: Birds and Jungle

Home » Art Updates » Art Challenge: Birds and Jungle

The latest art challenge is Birds & Jungle

Gabby and I wish you all a happy New Year and, although the next few months do look a little challenging, we are here with more art ideas and very much hope some of you will “have a go” and just play with your paints and brushes. Hopefully, it will help to pass the time and be enjoyable too.

This month, the theme “BIRDS & JUNGLES” has arisen from a curtain fabric sample which I had ordered. Gabby and I thought it would be a fun and wacky topic, allowing you to use flat shapes and bright colours, which will lighten up the winter days. Please look at the examples.

STARTER and ACTIVITIES TO TRY:

  1. Look at the ideas and artists below for ideas and inspiration.
  2. Start by sketching out some ideas onto paper.
  3. Choose a design and draw the outlines only (in pen, pencil, ink, felt pen)
  4. You may like to try a few ideas whilst we get some samples/ideas/demo together.

YOU WILL NEED SOME OF THESE THINGS:

Paper, Pencils, Pens, Inks, Watercolours or Acrylics, any Paints, Crayons or pastels, Brushes –and perhaps collage papers, glue, stencils

Enjoy being creative and we will keep you busy!!
Love Gabby and Judith
