Alert readers will recall that this term’s theme is ‘the sea’! Here in land-locked Bedford accessing the sea can be a bit of a challenge – so what better way to try and create all the drama and excitement of the sea than through an arts workshop especially designed by our Arts Award co-ordinator, Paul Nicholson.
The inspiration for the workshop was The Great Wave, a print by the nineteenth-century Japanese master, Hokusai.
PLACE youngsters tried to follow in the footsteps of the master by copying and painting a giant version of the print.
The images below show the process of tracing segments of the drawing from a projected image of the original and then coloring and assembling the final work.
You can see more of the day’s work in our gallery below.
