Do you wish you had an artistic bent so you could decorate your own objects? Do you work with children and want to occupy them with some simple craft?
Week 3 of the Design Challenge examines Space as an element in drawing your own piece of art.
Colouring in can be very relaxing and a way to engage with art in a non-threatening way. Particularly for those who might think they aren't artistic. My Rosemaling colouring in designs allow you to familiarise yourself with the forms and begin to understand this art. Build your confidence in drawing with this lovely Norwegian folk art.
Learn how to design your own artwork examining the elements and principles of art and how it applies to design and to Norwegian folk art.
There are a variety of elements used in every artistic design or piece. Principles applied to the elements bring them together in an eye-pleasing cohesive unit. Knowing this can make the difference between being able to produce an attractive or disjointed piece. A design challenge can improve your skill level, inspire you to extend yourself, and give you confidence in your designing skills. My focus is on traditional art but this challenge could apply to any artistic pursuit.
