Taking inspiration from the forests of England, each artist has spent time capturing the bright colors of the flowers on the forest floor beneath the majestic trees. Each artist learnt new painting techniques to create texture and depth. Layering and overlapping were another essential technique used. Impressionist paintings helped to inspire the style of our forest paintings.

The Ranfurly Artists have just completed a wonderful set of painted tea cups. Each person chose a different pattern or design to paint onto their cup and saucer. Each person then painted a little creature to perch on the edge of the cup.

We have been getting inspiration from masks from many different countries and cultures to create our own Tribal masks.
Each artist has used a photo to get ideas from and drawn this as the base of their work.
Using paper mache sculpting pulp the artists molded the shapes of the masks.
They each had to think about how they would use positive and negative space to highlight the aspects of their mask.
The masks were painted and decorated as the final step.
