04/09/2018 – Abstract Collage @ Jimmy’s

 

Rip it & strip it! Art Workshop – led by Oblique artist Penny Sobr & Dylan Wynn

Another full workshop at Jimmy’s Night Shelter this week! Thought we’d try cutting and ripping images into strips and bits to create abstract collages.

Some great results again and great fun with a snooze on the couch when completed for one guest & their pet dog!

28/08/2018 – Dada Surreal Collage @ Jimmy’s

 

More DaDa Collage Art Workshop – led by Oblique artist Penny Sobr & Dylan Wynn

Another full workshop at Jimmy’s Night Shelter this week! The collage workshop is so popular so we thought the guests should carry on and try to create their own Utopian World’s out of collage.

Some great results again and some of these will end up in an exhibition that we’re planning very soon to show guests art work from Jimmy’s with a percentage of profits going to this great homeless shelter! This will also boost their confidence with work on display !

21/08/2018 – Surreal Collage @ Jimmy’s

 

Surreal Collage Art Workshop – led by Oblique artist Penny Sobr & Dylan Wynn

It was great to have a full workshop at Jimmy’s Night Shelter last week and the guests  really got stuck into making collage! We supplied some fab vintage magazines, coloured papers & wallpaper books and the marbled paper that we made previously at Jimmy’s really came in handy for adding to these creations.

The inspiration was the surreal art by the Da Da movement of the 1930s …the guests took this idea and created their own movement where one guest created a kind of club flyer and another could be a poster for a Dracular film….whatever comes out on the canvas it creates a feeling of confidence and stimulation in the air!

14/08/2018 – Psychedelic Art @ Jimmy’s

 

Psychedelic Workshop – led by Oblique artist Penny Sobr & Dylan Wynn

Sometimes your well planned workshop can get taken in another direction by the participants and if they’re getting something out of it and it creates a positive effect, its best to go with the flow ! … The colourful psychedelic art turned into a kind of Op Art by one very talented guest who does a lot of art already for the community and festivals!

31/07/2018 – Bleeding Tissue Art @ Jimmy’s

 

Bleeding Tissue Workshop – led by Oblique artist Penny Sobr & illustrator Daisy Tempest

Love the effect of bleeding tissue which can create a stunning effects on the canvas, the guests really got into playing with this fast effective medium. They created subtle, they created loud..whatever mood, it flowed with their feelings.

Really love one regular’s abstract work, he’s so fast and decisive, he managed to create three pieces in one session! They’ve been through a lot in life and this is a great outlet for them.

24/07/2018 – Marbling on Polystyrene @ Jimmy’s

 

Psychedelic Marbling on Polystyrene Workshop – led by Oblique artists Penny Sobr & Dylan Wynn
Today we transported Jimmy’s back in time to the fab, hip & groovy 1960’s !! THE SUMMER OF LOVE !!  The guest’s created psychedelic marbling onto anything they could lay their hands on! Polystyrene, canvas, cloth, drink cans, cups & more ….it was amazing to see the way the colours & shapes attached themselves to an assorted array of materials!..even Dylan’s jacket and phone got a new make over in psychedelic swirls!
