11 Dec 2018 Love & Peace ! @ Jimmy’s

Peace Wreath Workshop – led by artist Penny Sobr & Dylan Wynn 
Inspired by World Peace & Xmas, the guests wanted to make wreaths made from paper hands. Such a simple idea but very effective outcome! The guests were thrilled with their wreaths which they hung on their bedroom doors and in the main lounge.
Such a great symbolic message too ….of coming together and creating world peace & love at this special time of the year!

The guest’s explored these abstract painting techniques and had great fun!
There’s no rules and anything goes!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

13 Nov 2018 Escape through Colour ! @ Jimmy’s

Bleeding Tissue Art Workshop – led by artist Penny Sobr & Dylan Wynn 
The guest’s explored colour spontaneously by playing with bleeding tissue which adds a bit of a kind of tie dye effect to their drawings and collage etc…

Tissue Paper bleeding is a fantastic way of creating multicolour backgrounds, what we love about it best, is that its totally random and you have no real control over the end result. It’s like waiting for magic to happen!

You can peel it off to reveal amazing colourful effects or decide to leave it on as collage,
either way works!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

30 Oct & 6 Nov 2018 Unleash your imagination @ Jimmy’s

 

Pastel Drawing Workshop – led by artist Penny Sobr & Dylan Wynn 
The guest’s unleashed their imagination’s with a new and improved version of the crayon, oil pastels which are incredible creation sticks that will get imaginations pumping full of ideas, colour and originality. Use every colour of the rainbow to soar and shine with ideas! Escape through swirls and shapes of tones and shades!
One week we drew still life of vegetables and fruit and the next week we went abstract expressionist with swirls, swishes, curls, cylinders, circles …..

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

23/10/2018 – Portrait drawing @ Jimmy’s

 

Portrait Workshop – led by artist Penny Sobr & Dylan Wynn 
A great way to study yourself is to draw your own portrait.
We brought in mirrors for the residents to create self portraits, some drew profiles and some drew their silhouette.
Drawing teaches you to see, to observe beyond what you know, to slow things down.
What makes us up as individuals ? What is our identity ? How do we see ourselves ?
Where are we at present, how do we see our future and our past ?
Creating this art helps us to think about some of the answers and create some fab inspirational  art work!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

16/10/2018 – Silhouette Art! @ Jimmy’s

 

Silhouette Profile Workshop – led by artist Penny Sobr & Dylan Wynn for Oblique Arts
Not everyone can draw so we devised this fun interactive method for the guests to be able to draw and play around with their faces and side profiles!
We used the light from our phones to create a shadow of our actual side profile and the guests had real fun tracing the shape of their face or each others onto card.
One guest who had been a reluctant participant finished the session off by telling us how much he’d enjoyed himself!
What makes us up as individuals ? What is our identity ? How do we see ourselves ?
Where are we at present, how do we see our future and our past ?
Creating this art helps us to think about some of the answers and create some fab inspirational  art work!
