So no sooner than we step through the looking glass at the end of Ofsted Wonderland than BTEC EV follows, swiftly followed by the A level EVs on Monday.
Saturday the 13th June then...what a fabulous day. Six of my wonderful students and I took over the Three Discovery zone in Maidenhead as part of Art On The Street 15.
Not one of my students, above. That's Marie: the brains behind AOTS. She was the guinea pig for us doing Muppet art using ArtRage app.
One of my students showing Muppet solidarity and one of his iPad art pieces.
We had a pretty large spread of ages joining us and everyone took a print out of their drawn Muppet with them...
And we painted a lot of muppets. We were a little off the front line and could have worked with many more people than those who joined us. That not saying we weren't busy through the day...but we have got this honed to a pretty fine art now, teaching people to draw on screens... To work with hundreds of people would have been well within our capabilities.
Since then I've also led a very lovely evening iPad art class. On chatting to the students it seemed a muppet would be more fun to do as their very first picture (as opposed to the more traditional snail) in ArtRage and so it was. This, painted upside down (and then finished on the train home), was mine :)
...and at the end of the day? A little bit of chill out drawing and pint, this time using Adobe Sketch app.
Art On The Street is a fab thing to be a part of. Long may it continue, whether that's in Maidenhead or beyond...
