By Wendy Gaines S0142794 My Visual Arts Journey
Beginning: 1970 – 1976 Dance, Music and Drawing – Primary school.
Dance: I enjoyed performing, and experiencing the energy. The flowing movements, facial expressions and body language enabled me to interpret my feelings throughout these sequences. (Art Syllabus –Learning Outcomes 2002 p21) Ceramics: I liked the texture and feel of the clay, being able to explore and experiment with different shapes, size and to have control of my own design. Music: Guitar and Recorder – Learning of the chords and scales enabled me to begin to write my own music. Drawing: I loved being able to manipulate the subject to how I viewed it within myself.
My Favourite Painting. This Fantasy Glue Art; brings a 3Dimensional look to the surface. The painting is set back into the frame but the frame has also been included as part of the finished product which I like. Artist: Missy R
