Great Northern Christmas Tree

We've spent the last couple of weeks looking at stars in art and how to make two dimensional stars into 3 dimensional ones.  All of which has culminated in our Christmas Tree for St Annes Library.  [ Many thanks to Booths for letting us use their Great Northern Christmas catalogues. 😊 ]  

Well done everyone and thank you for being adventurous and such good company!
Have a joyful Christmas and very best wishes for 2017.

Art Circle returns to St Annes Library on 11 - 12.30, Thurs 9 February 2017

and a bit of folding...

stars in art: pastel on lining paper

Following the National Gallery's lead, we're looking at stars in art and using them as starting points for different processes, scale and expressions in visual art.

This will culminate in our Christmas panel at St Annes Library.

This week our starting point was The Starry Night by Vincent van Gogh which, if you know the painting, I think you would have guessed.

The following pieces were between A3 & A2 in size and pastel on lining paper was used.
Fabulous results - well done everyone!
