‘Harvest Festival’
Exploring colour and shape using fruit and vegetables as a theme.

Module One

In this module we will be exploring colour and form (shape). Fruit and vegetables are the design theme as they are readily available and offer a fantastic range of shapes and colours.
Techniques covered will include
1. Colour mixing using paint and colour matching using paint and collage (cutting and sticking)
2. Making coloured papers using a range of different paints, inks and papers.
3. Collage techniques for creating patterns and designs.
4. Simple print making
5. Still life drawing and painting.
Inspiration will come from the art works of Henri Matisse and Giuseppe Arcimboldo.
The module ends with a celebration of your favourite colour and the construction of a simple zigzag (concertina) book.
