Collage/Mixed media 2D artwork (reusing and recycling paper and magazines) can be generalised work or focused around self-esteem and confidence building e.g What am I good at:

  • Air drying Clay pinch pots or animals (preference over two sessions to allow decorating time once dry)
  • Monochrome work (chalk and charcoal on white and black paper)
  • Natural objects (such as shells, bark and wool) – still life drawing or creative response work
  • Printing with Fruit and Veg
  • Paper cutting in the style of Matisse
  • Abstract Portraits in the style of Picasso
  • Notan (symmetrical paper cutting focussed on light and dark contrast
  • Fidget Spinners (drying time required)
  • Postcard Art/Artist cards (4.1 x5.8 2.5 x3.5)
  • Art Abandonment community project (suggested 2/4 sessions)
