A few weeks ago, artist Laura Reeves came to see us.
She ran a workshop both with our group and a lovely handful of other young people.
After hearing about Laura’s work, she set us the task to, using the alphabet, write a big list of things we liked.
Blue skies, Billboards
Coronation Street, Collage, Café Culture (I don’t like tea or coffee)
Ducks, Driving (Freedom)
Glue (more in current work)
Home, Hot Chocolate
Ink (printing papers)
Kit Kats (Mum)
Roads (long ones), Rust
Scissors, Saving (documents), Sunshine
Throwing out (bedroom)
Weather, Whack It
Have a go, it’s harder than you think!
We were then asked to use some/all/one of our words we’d come up with, and create a text of some sort.
I wrote about how I’d like to be Eric Carle, and to own draws full of neatly organised paper.
Our next workshop is going to be from Lauren Godfrey on 25 March – It’s free for you to come along if you’re aged between 16 and 25. Take a look:
