Weekend Art Challenge – Letter K

Welcome to our results for our weekend art challenge on the alphabet theme. This week our letter was ‘K’ and our students came up with a number of ideas including a variety of kingfishers, Koi, kiwi fruit, kittens, koalas and kookaburras… and a King Henry VIII among others!!

Our favourite this week which is our feature image is by student Jo Ssl who says…. “K is a kid letter, always kicking a ball and keen to play in a kart or with a kite…” We absolutely love it, so many things beginning with the letter K encapsulated within one piece. Scroll to the bottom of the page to see it in full! Well done Jo!

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

Rosalind Spilling: coloured pencil.   Yummy Kiwi fruit!
K for Koala. The next exercise in my course (coloured pencils) was to do a colour wheel so I decided to combine it with the weekend challenge. It took longer than I hoped, but I enjoyed it.
Clare O’Neill
Cute Koala
Sharon Williamson
K is for King Henry VIII 
LJ Collingbourne
K is for The King

K is for Kookaburra, a keen one here waiting for food scraps outside my mother’s house. Unlike kingfishers they’re quite a dull brownish-grey. But I’ve always liked them.
Julie Smalley
K for Kingfisher. Watercolour painting. One of my favourite birds.
Claire Cross
I suddenly realised that since I’m on the pet part of the chibi course I should attempt a chibi kitten. So here is said kitten doing what kittens do best – reaching her feet to lick them!
Audrey Quinton
K for beautiful koi fishes

I’ve chosen a cuddly toy I have at home. A kangaroo and kola bear. I used children’s paint and dry watercolour pencils. For the fur I used the rough end of a scouring sponge
Nina Phillips
K is for Kingfisher. Chinese brush and ink with gouache.
Dinah Barker
The letter K – this is Kathmandu, or at least the suburbs, with the Himalayas in the distance. It’s strange and sad how such a troublesome situation can have such a beautiful backdrop. This was a very quick oil sketch on board (A4).

A little kingfisher for this week’s challenge,  in pencils pastel and dry water colour.

K is for knowledge. Whoever said ‘Dogs have owners, cats have staff.’ was absolutely right!
Eve Warren
Sarah Dixon
K for Koala
Paolina Rinaldi
Kylo Ren, son of darkness, heir apparent to Lord Vader … and my favorite Star Wars character. I drew the son of Leia and Han with pencil, colored pencils and fine liner. This is a drawing of an image of the Star Wars movie ‘The Force Awakens’.
