Katsushika Hokusai
Save Our Seas Project

The Katsushika Hokusai Save Our Seas Project was a reaction to watching “A Plastic Ocean”, which is a movie documentary on Netflix.

The use of mainly plastic and tissue is to highlight how much of our rubbish ends up in our seas and oceans thus destroying the sea life.

"Giant Wings - Express Yourself" Project

The CDETB Art Students worked on a project called “Giant Wings – Express Yourself”. Several paintings were completed by the group in order to experience using Acrylics.  The paintings were later photocopied and cut into paper feathers and collaged together to create life size angel wings. Selfies were encouraged as each participant instantly became an angel.
Colour and texture were the main focus of the paintings with a view to creating intuitive pieces which were inspiring and sensual. Expressive paintings become paper feathers on paper wings to encourage us to spread our wings and see how far we can fly.
The students exhibited their artwork at the annual CRC Art Exhibition 2020.
