#CreateAtHome - Cardboard Animal Masks with Genevieve Harden

#CreateAtHome - Cardboard Animal Masks with Genevieve Harden

Mon 1 Jun - Fri 31 Jul 2020

#CreateAtHome - Artist Genevieve Harden has created this amazing workshop to help you explore different mask making techniques using cardboard. Start by creating different textures by tearing and ripping the cardboard, and also use flattened smooth pieces, and different colours. Shred some cardboard for whiskers or feathers. Puncture with a ruler to create rough pieces. Create as many textures as you can, then draw your animal's face and create a jigsaw of pieces with all your different textures. Gen will show you how to make a basic structure first, then attach all your pieces. In this video, Genevieve will show you how to make a Cat Mask, and you can then apply these techniques to making all sorts of animal masks.
Enjoy!

Draíocht's Family Art programme is ideal for ages 5-10 years.

With Genevieve Harden

Mon 1 Jun - Fri 31 Jul 2020

#CreateAtHome - Artist Genevieve Harden has created this amazing workshop to help you create your own Animation Set, complete with backdrop, props and a mini photo of yourself in the middle of all the action, on your dream day. First a brainstorm to draw your perfect sketched background painting. Maybe a Hot Air Balloon Adventure? Maybe a Beach Scene? Or maybe a Giant Ladybird and lots of Giant Flowers? Enjoy drawing and painting your backdrop and adding in objects into your scene. Gen shows us how to make a ladybird from plasticine to complete her adventure. You could carry on this idea and make your own stop motion movie afterwards.  

Enjoy!
