Express Yourself | Huddersfield

6th Sept - 18th Oct with Sally Barker
We will be making our own mosaics pieces . Looking at the work of artists Klimt and Matisse, then adapting their designs to create our own beautiful mosaics.  Mosaic making is an ancient process involving  putting together an image using lots of tiny pieces of coloured glass or ceramic on wood.

8th Nov - 13th Dec with Helen Sergeant
Self Portraits:  Who we are, what we do, how we would like others to see us, our identities. We will look at a range of artists self-portraits for inspiration such as Frida Khalo, Cindy Sherman and Vincent Van Gogh. We will begin by using smart phone cameras and small hand held mirrors to capture some initial ideas about yourself and/ or you can bring in photographs, personal ephemera and clothes from home to dress up and explore/ express your identities. We will be working towards making life size self-portraits on big pieces of paper but you can work small if you want. We will be working with ink, pencil, charcoal, graphite and water colour. 

Sessions take place at:
HOOT Creative Arts
Bates Mill, Milford Street
