Seascape 2 (One of 4)
Photo Description:
Coast: A project, for the development of art opportunities, for children, within The Coastal Alliance (a collaborative group made up of schools of Herne Bay and Whitstable). On Friday 5th June 2015, as part of the Coast project, children from a number of schools were given the wonderful opportunity to explore the art, the style and techniques of British Artist, Kurt Jackson. Herne Bay Junior School hosted art workshops led by the talented art teachers and Sixth Formers of Herne Bay High School. During these sessions children enjoyed observing and discussing a number of Kurt Jackson’s seascapes, going on to stippling, dabbing, finger-painting, printing, splattering and using a range of brush techniques to develop a greater understanding of the artist’s techniques. Following this, as part of Herne Bay Junior School’s Art Week (29th – 3rd July 2015), a number of children participated in an art workshop, this time in the spacious and inspirational Art Department at Herne Bay High School. The morning session was led by the talented art teachers and Sixth Formers of Herne Bay High School. The fifteen children from Herne Bay Junior School applied the skills and techniques experienced in the previous workshops, to produce 4 large seascape canvases.
