Welcome to our post all about the artwork from this weekends art challenge ‘onions and garlic’. What an amazing array of drawings and paintings our students have created!

We are so pleased and utterly delighted at how many students took part this week and we would officially like to thank each and every one of them! It not only means a lot to us when we see students taking part each week, but we are seeing improvement in students who are producing work regularly.

It’s all about practicing to help improve skills but also about having fun in the process. The subject matter of onions and garlic really lends itself to being creative and artistic. It’s really interesting to see how everyone interpreted the brief as you scroll down the page.

We hope that our readers and our students who took part enjoy seeing everyones artwork collated here – well done to everyone!!!!!


Onion, garlic and shallot on a mirror plate: fly’s-eye view. Phew, combined reflections and alliums in the same piece. It’s not very palatable I know, but intriguing practice.
