Mrs Orth's Mini Gallery
Currently the 83-year-old British artist, David Hockney is in self-isolation at his home in France where he is creating drawings of spring using his iPad.
He has announced that spring can’t be cancelled and we should all try to re-connect with nature. Take a look at some of Hockney’s spring pictures that I have attached above. If you have an iPad see if you can create your own series of pictures called, ‘Spring Awakens’. Draw a different pictures each day and don’t forget to send me some examples.
When David Hockney exhibited his first Spring pictures in London in 2012 he created a spring room filled from floor to ceiling with multiple pictures of the season emerging.
Many of his pictures were created using an iPad as well as using more traditional materials such as paint, charcoal and pencils. If you don't have an iPad drawing app, felt pens can give a similar effect.
To create your gallery fold a piece of card (a cereal box will also do the job) to make 4 walls. Next print mini versions of your i-Pad art and paste them to the walls or glue on your mini paintings and drawings.
Can you name the famous artists visiting Mrs Orth's gallery?
"Sketchbooks!” is a short online course AccessArt has created. It is made up of a combination of resources on AccessArt, specially re-edited so that they are suitable for all ages and all abilities to use at home. No special materials are required and it is completely free to take part.
The ideas can be spread out over a number of days or weeks, and the skills and experience learnt will stand pupils in good stead for when they return to school.
If you practice an instrument take time to do this. If you have an instrument unloved and lying around the house now is a great time to learn to play it. I have tuned up my cello that I played at school and with Mr Orth on the flute we will be joining friends in London for a virtual play-along.
You could also start to create your own music using Garage Band.
