SKETCHBOOK - MARKS AND COLLAGE
AT MOLLY-MEG, ESSEX ROAD
We launched our new Sketchbooks for Children at Molly Meg in Islington as part of London Design Festival week.
Led by artist and art therapist Grace Thompson, children were given a beautifully designed sketchbook to reshape, using a variety of art materials.
In this workshop the historical and contemporary artists work that features throughout the books were explored, and thought about in terms of what the images made the participants think about and feel.
Through collage and mark making the sketchbooks took on a new life and were transformed by participants, into unique art objects.
Curated by Grace Thompson, and designed by Illustrator Peter Cline, the Little Art Forms Sketchbook was developed to ignite and encourage creativity and imaginative thinking. Packed full of images that highlight and bring together the work of contemporary and historical artists from around the world, their images act as a springboard for ideas, and to ignite and encourage a childs imaginative thinking.
