The story of the things that are special to us

Today was the second session with Heol Goffa and as a warm-up exercise we picked one item from our bags of things and we drew it without taking the pen off the paper.

We then took it in turns to take photographs of the things that we had brought along that are special to us. We arranged our things on the table and took three pictures choosing different ways of setting them out.

Sometimes it was difficult to make things stand up…

During the break we chose one of our three photos and these were printed.

After the break Guy chose another one of our items for each of us to draw. Then we put acetate on top and made a drawing on top of the first drawing.

We coloured the first drawing with colouring pencils before sticking the layers back together and framing them with a mount.

We finished the session by using the photographs from earlier and choosing some wallpaper to use as a background to show them against.

At the end we were happy, tired and hungry!
