On Tuesday 20 October 2015 pupils from St John Lloyd’s Catholic Secondary School returned to Llanelly House with their teachers and invited guests to celebrate the work they had created during the Illustration project.
A series of ideas boards were presented in the main gallery space.
The cards were showcased in the cafe.
Feedback on the work was captured in the comments book.
The pupils shared a photo-opportunity with the Mayor, illustrator Fran Evans and artist Pip Lewis.
Each of the students took home a pack of ten cards printed from their designs.
Today was the fourth and last session of the Art of illustration project.
We had to work really hard to complete our designs for printing. Final decisions were made about text and composition.
We also had time to work on our ideas boards to accompany the printed cards in the exhibition.
The session ended with time to reflect on the processes and materials that we have explored.
The things I’ve most enjoyed is coming up with the ‘home sweet home’ idea for my card.
I’m looking forward to seeing my card when it is finished.
I like the style of my picture it’s got into the woods and people and a mixture of things and it shows my love of music.
My design is a keyboard and I’ve made up a word called TAPAL, which means to communicate with your pals, you tap on a keyboard with your pals, so TAPAL!
I like cars and speed. My favourite thing to use is the paint.
Out of all the media my favourite is the inks. In my final design I’m using paint and pastels together.
I’ve enjoyed the project. My favourite bit has been painting my drawing.
Here is a slideshow of work in progress for our card designs. Today was the third session. One more week to go to finish the artwork, before it goes away to be printed as cards!
