Oil Crayon City – Resist Technique

August18

 

Here is a simple project to do with kids. Just draw a picture using oil crayons, crayons or a candle, then use water colours. If you don’t have water colours, use water with some food colouring in it. [Mix a small amount of water and some drops of food colouring to make an ink wash].

Computer Collage

Well it’s been a long time since I have posted anything on my blog. I have been extremely busy with Uni. I had a scout around this morning and thought I would post this. I have made this computer collage using the National Gallery of Australia See-Saws software. It’s fun for kids of all ages. You may need to install adobe shockwave to be able to use it. It is a program that allows you to use pre-stored objects to make a collage. you can even animate the images. Heaps of fun and easy to use.

It reminds me of Jeannie Baker’s beautiful collage work. Have you seen Jeannies latest book, called Mirror. I love the concept of this book. It is a book that compares 2 boy’s lives and the contrast between their lifestyles. One boy lives in Sydney Australia and one boy lives in a remote North African village in Morocco. The book is designed to open out from the left and right, so children can compare and contrast the differences.
