This Is Me
Silver Active Summer Art Project
This summer 2020 we continued to deliver art door to door.
As part of the Silver Active Summer Activity programme for the residents of Homes for Haringey,Pauline and Christina devised art packs to keep residents busy and helping them to learn new art skills and exploring new techniques. There were four more packs. These packs had drawing techniques and colour theory skills. Activities such as how to make a continuous line self portrait, paper hand decoration, make a decorative bunting and a chance to decorate their own mug for a tea party at the end of the project!!!
After completing the 'This Is Me' project funded by The mayor Of London Culture Seeds Grant, Pauline and Christina continued to deliver art packs to the residents of Homes 4 Haringey as part of the Silver Active Summertime Avtivity programme. The packs included lots of fun activities and many new art techniques to learn. The first pack had a colour theory study and how to draw, colour and shade an orange...the pack included a real orange to draw!!!
These two activities were included in art pack number 4. There was a self portrait activity to be done by not taking the pen off the paper.And a draw around your hand that can be decorated with colours and quotes. This hand will then be put on exhibition with all the #homes4haringey participants on to a big wisdom tree in the housing developments.
