Springhill Wow Week

Had an extremly enjoyable and busy week at Springhill Primary School in Accrington working with every year group. Made everything from tribal masks to Manga characters and Picasso style self portraits. Hope they had a good day on Friday with their pararde. Off to Whitefield next week to paint some underwater scenes.

Think the workshop went ok at Touchstones yesterday. It was quite calm with people staying in their gardens in the sunshine. The stencils seemed to work ok and i had lots of useful talks with the visitors and staff. Most importantly some good drawings were produced although i think maybe the paper was a bit big, lots of colouring in . Hope they have me back next year.

Exhibition Cafe Life Touchstones Rochdale Art Gallery

An exhibition of my food inspired paintings opened this week at Touchstones in Rochdale. Originally part of the Feel Good Festival the work is on display in the Cafe Life area of the gallery, not surprisingly in the cafe and information centre. I'm very pleased with how they look, the team at the gallery have done a great job and the paintings are on display until the end of July.
