This was a very quiet week for the family workshop, but those who did come along, seemed to really enjoy the idea of this weeks workshop.
Taking the title of the current exhibition at The Tetley, ‘Painting in Time’, as my starting point for inspiration, I immediately thought of clocks, and circles. So from that we have Circle of Time, this developed into a way to illustrate the four seasons.
The participants had a choice to select one of the seasons, and decorate their own 1/4 circle. There were four areas for each season, with different coloured materials and pens for each. The idea was to decorate the inner quarter circle with materials and the outer segment with coloured pens (not all chose to do this, but who am I to argue with artist expression).
Using different materials for Autumn, Spring, Summer and Winter, the participants created a tactile as well as visual experience. Once all the seasons had been decorated we completed the Circle of Time.
I was assisted by fellow artist, Carmen Coronado.
