Since the lockdowns of 2020-21 I've had to find new ways of working with people. Here are some of the results:
Wolverhampton Art Gallery have developed a range of Family Friendly online resources.
They commissioned me to produce three activities:
Watercolour activity pack - based on an exhibition of Victorian watercolour paintings from the Royal Collection.
Seaside and Land Art activity pack - based on paintings in the gallery's collection.
The Barber Institute of Fine Arts have a diverse programme called Barber Home.
They commissioned me to produce two activities:
Still Life drawing - Learn about the significance of objects in a still life composition, then draw your own.
St Ives Scrap Sculptures - Turn your household recycling into artworks inspired by Gabo and Hepworth
The New Art Gallery Walsall produced online workshop videos every Wednesday.
My workshops can be seen below. Edited by Mark Hinton of www.blendfilm.co.uk

Make a mini pinball game, inspired by a Monet seaside scene.
Translucent window hangings or mobiles to brighten up your space.
Draw faces in a variety of styles and expressions.
Learn to make automata - mechanical moving toys.
Make vessels from recycled materials and decorate with colourful tissue paper decoupage.
