Yarn painting


SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Tuesday afternoon art class explored painting with yarn recently.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

After soaking their yarn in tempera paint, students slowly pulled the yarn across their paper to create patterns of color.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Everyone had fun exploring this new method of painting.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

The painting process took some time to learn how to master the yarn and control the paint.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Everyone was very happy with their paintings and learning how to paint in a new way!

Color

Our final Wednesday Afternoon Art Class for the winter was full of color.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Students began with their prints made in the previous class.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Everyone chose colors to create a pattern of color on their prints.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

This required focus and concentration as every student created their own combinations of colors.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Students enjoyed the process of creating a monoprint full of color with watercolor paint.

Here are some examples of the students’ work:

Multicolored painting


SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

We began the painting project at the Willard Hope Center this past week.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Student members eagerly began the process of giving their canvases a base coat of acrylic paint.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

For many of the students it was their first encounter with painting on canvas with acrylics.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

It was an exciting beginning for everyone as to learn to use a  brush and create uniform strokes to cover their canvas.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Energy was high as everyone busily covered their blank canvas with a bright color.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Next week we will begin to mix colors and add shapes to the canvases.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

It was lots of fun to interact with the student members and see their eagerness to participate.
