Wednesday - Kara Walker



Kara is a New York based artist who looks at race, gender and equality through silhouette works of art.



Some of her pieces are interactive. In this wagon, smoke pours out of the image and music plays to tell the story of the art. 



Can you create a silhouette of your favourite scene from a book or fairy tale?

Thursday - Kehinde Wiley



The layers of Kehinde Wiley's work are amazing. The photographic quality of the image is set against a highly textured background. 



​​​​​​​You can recreate this by drawing a portrait of yourself on a piece of wallpaper, wrapping paper or a magazine cover. You can get small pieces of wallpaper for FREE in DIY shops. 


Have a go at creating a self portrait and sharing it on the blog. 



Friday - Bridget Riley



Bridget Riley explores some amazing effects by changing the size of a reported pattern. Can you create a work of art like this by changing the gaps between your shapes?



Have a go and share your work on the blog.
