Deaf Awareness Week – Art Session

Well…that’s another two hour teaching session under my belt!! 🙂  This time we had both deaf and hearing people painting together (with our BSL interpreter!) at a Deaf Awareness Week event.  We had a wonderful couple of hours using the Sostrene Grenes art materials!  We started out by drawing practice, then progressed to techniques of applying the watercolour paint and finally the small group produced some wonderful floral rings! It’s amazing to think that some of these people have never painted before!!  Wow…very impressed!  Well done x

Update – Søstrene Grene art demo day!

Wow …what a day! To say that the Søstrene Grene art event was a success would be an understatement. We had so many folk trying the art supplies…and I could not have survived without my twin sister Denise of Denise’s Boxes / Denise McDowell Art!! She was superb with the younger ones who wanted to try to paint sunflowers and floral rings…amazingly patient and encouraging…thank you sis!! Thanks again to the staff and Manager – Nuala – from the Belfast Ann Street store – it was a joy!! 🙂 … so happy it went well and some folk even bought the art bundle to continue their creativity at home 🙂 !!

30 Paintings in 30 days :)

I decided to start September with a challenge to myself – to complete 30 paintings in 30 days !  I had been given lovely watercolours from a colleague who didn’t use them.  This prompted me to start some floral wreaths in various tones.  Happy to say I’m keeping on course … here they are ….. so far!!

Hi everyone!

This is a new kind of artwork for me!  One of my colleagues asked if I knew of someone who could draw her dog as a gift.  I said ‘I can try’ (never having drawn any kind of animal before!)…nothing ventured …nothing gained.  Thankfully she loved it and that lead on to drawing quite a few before the New Year.  It’s a different kind of art …not as free and easy as painting abstracts in acrylic but satisfying nonetheless!

 

Hope you enjoy them !    Mo x
