Weekend Art Challenge – Halloween!

Happy Halloween everyone!! For those who celebrated, we hope that you all had a fantastic time enjoying some Trick or Treating, plenty of chocolates and enjoyed carving your pumpkins very artily!!

We set our students the task this week of creating artwork on the theme of Halloween. We have to say there are some quite scary paintings below. Scroll if you dare! Thank you to everyone who took part, we love them all!

We just couldn’t resist the amazing pumpkin painting by Julie Martin-Molyneux who painted this and submitted it as one of her assignments this week. We are sure she will receive excellent feedback!

We also wanted to bring your attention to the incredible watercolour by Barbara Schunk below. The dark black and grey background blends into the rich purples of the creature beautifully. The street light gives what should be a comforting glow but is almost quite ominous! We love the little details …even down to the creatures claws! The whole scene has been wonderfully thought out and executed. Well done Barbara. We hope that our students are truly inspired.

Congratulations to everyone who took part this week, we hope that you have all enjoyed the challenge. We have another tomorrow, so stay tuned where ever you are!

I have done this for this weekend art halloween challenge in soft pastel. This is the first time I have managed to complete a picture in time for the weekend challenge but then again I only started the course 3 weeks ago.

Hi Melanie. I enclose a Halloween work in acrylic. I used a wide brush loaded with white and coloured paints to create this painting of a home-grown pumpkin from my allotment.

The background is black and blue children’s paint dabbed on with tissue. The witch is hand drawn again children’s paints used. Googley eyes to add to a crazy look.
Silver stars, bats and Halloween stickers used. I mounted the witch on a circular box for a 3D effect.
