Simmonds (Arts co-ordinator - artscope) + Roberto Bono (Volunteer worker)
brushes 2m in length provided the creative tools for session six! The
long brushes provided, not only an obvious physical distance to overcome,
but a flexibility which encouraged the participants to also focus on
brush manipulation and control. The group, using a varied palette of
colour, had free reign to mark make onto the vertical 4x2m 'canvas'.
At first the group tended to maintain fixed positions and worked on
specific areas, but as the session progressed, individuals gained the
confidence to move around the 'canvas', subsequently combing their painterly
marks. Palettes were also combined and the group had to negotiate their
own movements around the painting. The resultant work will be left in
situ until next week.
