Ideas for the Young Peoples Fishy Workshops
March 10, 2018 • Leave a Comment
Continuing with the Fishy theme, I am starting to develop my ideas for the workshops with the young people.
I am going to make an example to take with me, to show them and help them visualise what they could make.
So I really need to start saving old paper/plastic bags and newspapers.
My starting point for any idea, starts with drawings...
My first thought was 'COD HEADS', hence the cod drawings.
COD TAIL COD HEAD
These drawings have been quickly scanned in from my sketchbook.
They are sort reference drawings so I can understand the form of the Cod. Form is really about the shape, because these drawings are potentially going to inform a 3D outcome. There is a clue in these drawings too.. I havent drawn the whole fish.. only sections of the body of the fish - I must not be interested in the centre section of the fish?
Once I had completed these sketches, I asked myself if the young people would really find a Cod interesting, just because I do? So I did a little more research and found a more 'scary' or unusual fish.
I had a light bulb moment!
Now I am going to see if I can include a light in this one - this is how ideas start. I think once finished he might look cool in my office....
So this is the fish I am going to make! Anglerfish Light this fish up!
So I am excited about making this now!!
My eye is on Howard's flexible light on his desk!
See you next time ..

Once a Community Artist, now an Lecturer at CCAD, this blog is about my personal creative journey. Recently married to a guy who loves photography, who gave me an impetus to create alongside him. So out came the pens, paper and the computer. My illustrations, are created via the support of 3 very industrious cats, so any criticism I past that straight to them.... I hope you like and would love any feedback...
