This weekend I volunteered at my first family workshop at the New Art Exchange, in Forest Fields here in Nottingham. The theme of the class was to make a storybook about your dream day. The class was led by local illustrator Jason James who designs his own comic series called GhostBoy. It was a lot of fun, and all the kids who turned up seemed to really enjoy themselves (especially when the paints and glitter appeared!) A lot of their dream days seemed to feature dinosaurs, and why not eh?
I'm looking forward to helping at more classes over the summer. for more upcoming events at the gallery click here.
I love this picture of an explosion, pretty accurate don't you think?
