Weekend Art Challenge – Letter J

Welcome to our most recent weekend art challenge where we invited our students to draw or paint something beginning with the letter J. Our feature image this week is by student Lowri Tolman who painted the various types of Jays in watercolour, pen and ink. It’s superb!!

We also wanted to give a shout out to the two students who made their artwork into Jigsaw puzzles. Pauline with her Jersey artwork and Hiya with her jellybean jellyfish jigsaw! We love them. As we love all the pieces sent into us this week. Keep up the great work everyone! Competition results coming soon! Stay tuned!

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

I liked the suggestion of jigsaw in the J ideas and a friend has just gone on holiday to Jersey, which I love so I combined the two! I think the next country challenge is beginning with J? Might be a hatrick!

Jerusalem – I have been to Israel a couple of times now. I have a lot of quilting friends there, and one of my favourite places is Jerusalem. I was wandering the Mahane Yehuda, the main market in the city with my guide, and came across this gentleman shopping for Shabbat.

JOY. I have drawn this red train with happy friends for a couple of friends. They are volunteers who write short stories for a state school in its website topic called ” reading for fun”. So, when I thought about the children travelling together in an old red steam came to my mind the word “JOY”.

I’ve used a metallic gold pen for the lid. The bottom of the lid has a strip of ribbon, a bow and a pretty piece of material for around the bottom of the lid. Watercolour pencils and stickers for the label.

Alphabet – J. Someone I know very well is only truly Joyous when there’s a Jaunt in the offing. No joke!
