Exploring water

Inspired by Claude Monet’s Rocks at Port Coton, artist Hannelore Smith introduces ways to create exciting mark making and wax resist drawings, that explore water.

Hannelore invites families to playfully experiment with ways to mimic the choppy waves in Monet’s painting, for example dropping objects in water, shaking it or blow with a straw. Families are encouraged to take photos of the different ripple effects that can be made. Families then create the marks with candle/wax crayons and lay inks/paints over the top. This can be extended to make a watery landscape painting.

This event is open to the public.
