Explore Light – 30th July 2008

Playing with the ohp and all the materials was really great. After initially being a little hesitant, and starting off drawing figures and images, the girls in the workshop began to really get into the idea of being more expressive and free with shapes, colours and levels of opacity. They were overlaying contrasting materials and colours and holding them to the light, or placing them on the ohp to see what the light did to their composition. By the end of the workshop they were being very discernng about which bits were most ‘effective’ and expanding on those sections. We ended up with some really imaginative and interesting juxtapositions of materials and colour. The girls loved it! I think they also enjoyed writing and drawing on the walls, it is such a great feeling to have permission to do that! – Daisy, Workshop Leader
