Weekend Art Challenge – Halloween!

Welcome to our scary results for this weekends art challenge on the theme of Halloween!! Our feature image this week is by student Pauline Burke who created a very atmospheric and clever way of portraying lots of glowing pumpkins in the dark! We love it!

We also wanted to mention Nina Phillips who made a fantastic Halloween card which you can see below too. Everyone’s work is amazing and we can’t thank you enough for taking the time in doing these for us. We hope you had a bit of fun along the way too!

We posted our 10 favourite pieces over on instagram today too. If you are on there, come over and follow us! @londonartcollege Whatever you are doing this weekend, enjoy yourselves and stay safe!

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

For this weekend’s challenge I’ve made a Halloween card. I’ve reused the card from an old cereal box and covered it with black paper.The pumpkin and cat are hand drawn. Children’s paints and gold and silver metallic pens have been used to outline. The background is decorated with a silver border, bat, stars and Halloween stickers. The cat has been made to pop out.

I used marker and brush pen for this drawing, a technique I learned on my recent drawing with pens course.

It couldn’t really be classed as ‘artwork’ for the #weekendchallenge but I had a bit of fun making my Hedgehogs Halloween Party. I’ve had regular hedgehog visitors to dine in my garden (cat biscuits) since about April so am quite fond of them.

At early All Souls’ Day parades in England, during the festivities, poor citizens would beg for food and families would give them pastries called “soul cakes” in return for their promise to pray for the family’s dead relatives.  Sometimes the cakes had holes in the centre, symbolising eternity; apple-bobbing is also associated with Halloween, probably going back to the Roman festival for Poloma, the goddess of fruit and trees also at this time of year.

Looking forward to the Halloween weekend and a  little picture of some crafty pumpkins with some turned up tone for more effect!
Happy Halloween weekend 🎃 !
