Hares, hedgehogs and squirrels

Posted on

Cardboard cutouts were the order of the day on Wednesday night as Angus showed us how to turn simple silhouettes into lovely works of art.

We looked at the work of a number of different artists, including Pat Perry and Chris Keegan, who both use simple outlines of objects to create something much more intricate and beautiful. And there was the work of Norwegian artist, Andreas Lie, who combines animal portraits with a glimpse of their habitat.

Angus demonstrated some of his own ideas and set us all to work with stencils of animals and people’s heads. Coloured pencils, pens and paint all helped us bring some colour to our creations as you can see from the pictures.
