Child's art!(4 Posts)
I wasn't sure where to post this, so I'm just going for the arts and crafts in the hope that people will see this!
Long story short: I want/need/would love your child's art!
I'm studying Fine and Applied Arts and Early Childhood Studies at Canterbury Christ Church at the moment! And am doing a project where I use my own childhood drawings and turn them into ceramics Much like the ceramics of Joan Miro, Picasso, and paintings of Paul Klee.
It's mostly about children's freedom of expression, and I'm interested in ALL ages! ALL scribbles! ALL everything! I believe that children have an abundance of creativity, although I don't have children of my own (yet) , I have many brothers and sisters all younger than me and have worked with children in a creative setting, so I know that although it's a messy task, it's amazing to see what they come up with! And I also believe that as adults, we unfortunately have way too many restrictions to tap into that part of our brains again. booooo Anyway, that's probably more than you need to know!
I will be carrying this on into my third year, where my work will be exhibited in the gallery in Canterbury High Street so if you're interested in giving me some inspiration, I would be SO grateful!! And I can either give your child recognition or leave it anonymous, completely up to you!
I would be forever grateful if anyone replies!
I don't have any work completely finished yet, but once it is, I will post it up so you can get a better idea of what I'm doing
Thank you in advance,
So what will you be doing with the art exactly? Would we be able to see the results of your work? Will it be for sale?
I'm currently using my own childhood drawings as basis for inspiration for ceramics. So, I've taken some shapes and colours as the form and the design. I'll post more pics when I have them, but for now, The sketchbook is how my first idea came about.. and the picture of the empty cubes are inspired by how I used to doodle, putting squares on top of each other!
Ceramics is such a lengthy process, as each firing takes 3 days and there's two firings with making stages in between, so forgive me for not being able to show you anything finished as of yet!
I haven't thought about what to do with them after they are assessed but I wouldn't rule out selling!
Hope this helps! Thank you!
Do you still need the artwork? I have a two year old - so just scribbles at the moment!
