Weekend Art Challenge – Water Sports

Welcome to our weekend art challenge where we asked our students to create a painting, drawing or collage on the theme of water sports!

We have received some spectacular artwork this week along with such happy and playful pieces too. We love the Jet-skiing guinea pig by Andi and Frogs playing beach ball by Rose-Marie. Our featured image this week is by student Nina Phillips who has create a wonderful collage of a wind surfer with beach life and waves. Absolutely superb!

We hope that everyone enjoyed this challenge. Stay tuned for a new Weekend Art Challenge posted here tomorrow.

A bit of a tenuous link – more water games than water sports.  This was inspired by a very old print I have, which looks to be Victorian.

water sports. My dad was a keen fisherman, this is based on a photo of one of his last fishing trips. He was never as happy as when he was on the water.

I fun painting for my Aussy God Daughter, ‘the skiing Koala’ in her favourite colours. But could be seen as ‘the swimming Koala’ for the weekend challenge!

Weekend Challenge – enjoying the water sports?

I’ve tried two different ways for this challenge
Picture one – Wind surfing. For this picture I did a collage using, stickers, bidis, and the waves have been created by using a stencil using a variety of colours. Pencils and felt tips were used for the windsurfer.
Picture two – Water polo.
I’ve used watercolour pencils for this one. With regards to the water I used a white pencil and did some splashes and textured look and coloured over the pattern with various shades of blue watercolour pencils.
