We started this morning with a shower – we needed to dampen and ink a large sheet of paper before the group arrived. We thought a few spots of rain might help, but it didn’t rain. Zoe pretended to be a rain shower, but this seemed to be a message to the heavens to open, and within minutes the deluge of rain melted our ink away!
The rain did stop in time for lunch!
So, it is day four of Art Camp and the group are all involved in personal projects, many coming equipped with objects and ideas to store in their work.
Individual conversations have identified a range of directions the children want to go in, so boats and gliders are being constructed, boxes decorated and embellished, stories being told – really imaginative responses to ideas and materials.
Zoe did some lovely atmospheric photography, getting close to the details around a very busy studio space!
Fragments of driftwood become sailing ships on the high seas, boxes made more precious, containers full of intrigue
And two large inked papers, a seascape and a landscape, conveying a sense of flying in the air and looking down on the world below…..
