Weeknd Art Challenge – Bears

Our weekend art challenge this week was to draw or illustrate a bear character. There were plenty fo choose from, or alternatively students could make up their own!

We have received some fantastic pieces of artwork, including a superb Rupert the Bear character by student Eve Warren. We love it! We hope you enjoy viewing our students character bear artwork.

And finally….we have one very important point to make regarding a challenge on Friday 13th! Please start saving your TOILET ROLL middles! Intrigued? You will have to keep checking back to find out why!!

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

Three weeks ago I bought a box of 24 Polychromos Colour Pencils from Faber-Castell and this is my first picture with these pencils. It’s a
fascinating medium, really new for me, but not so easy as I’m used to work with watercolor.

Rosalind: pastels: not a famous bear but one with character.
My bear cannot bear posing for the picture! I draw him with a silver pigment ink pencil on a black paper as I like the contrast it makes. I tried not to look a lot at the drawing while in progress, so it is somewhat intuitive.

 Bears. Rupert Bear was created by artist Mary Tourel. He first appeared in the Daily Express newspaper way back in 1920! The main purpose of his creation was to win sales from newspaper rivals Daily Mirror/Mail. Rupert was one of my favourites as a child. I can remember getting a Rupert the Bear Annual at Christmas.
