Learn To Draw Over The Mid-Term Break

Hi all,
This time of year I would normally run the Art Academy art camp over the midterm break. Not this year of course. In lieu of those classes I am posting online classes. They are downloadable and you have unlimited access to learn to make impressive, professional art in your own time and space. Kindly share with arty, creative friends or those who have arty teens at home. Or enjoy some sketching yourselves. Sheila

Fun Lockdown Activities: Hand Casting: Full Tutorial

A fun art activity you can enjoy at home is casting your hand from alginate. Put a finger down if you have ever had an impression made of your teeth at the dentist? Seaweed based alginate is the product dentists use. You can cast your own hand like you can see in the cover shot or get creative and cast a couple holding hands and experiment with hand poses and gestures. Check out the video for a fun tutorial / art class. (materials list with links below)

Enjoy making hand casts of loved ones. It could be a lovely gift or keepsake. Would you like a tutorial on how to draw the hand cast you made?

The Scream by Edvard Munch recreated by the Art Academy Artists

Ancora Imparo “I am Still Learning” It was in his 87th year that the great Italian Renaissance artist Michelangelo uttered these words – an ancient testament to the modern idea of lifelong learning. Art being the greatest adventure of them all.

I got to teach some incredible artists this week between the ages of 6-14 years old. I am so proud of them. They put huge efforts into recreating the Edvard Munch masterpiece The Scream over the mid-term break.

Huge congratulations to: Emily. Marianne, Hannah, Catherine, Giulia, Marco, Emilia, Tadgh, oisín, cillian, seóna, ciarán, cornelia, penelope, and seán. Very well done guys.
