Weekend Art Challenge – Creepy Crawlies!

Welcome to the scariest blog post we have had for a while… read on if you dare! We asked our students this week to create artwork on the theme of Creepy Crawlies. If you scroll down the page, you will be amazed at the vast array of ideas and creativity this week.

Well done to student Lowri Tolman who has been chosen this week as our featured image. We agree… a very creepy crawly!!

Their first outing plays with point of view and considers the question:
who are the creepy crawlies?
This is the caterpillar of the Cecropia Moth which, when a fully fledged moth, has a wingspan of 7 inches!  He was just so colourful and unusual.
Watercolour painting 7x 10.5 inches.

The watercolour background is based on a photo of a sea-kale that went wrong as a photo but fine as an abstract – then one that creeps and one that crawls were added.

Weekend Challenge: using dry coloured pencils and sketching pencils I drew and coloured “Bob the Olympic back swimmer”. I used a swimming pool design piece of card for the background and added leaf sequins for the finishing touch.
