Orleans House Gallery Art Clubs Colouring Book

Animals2Last term I realised a project with the Orleans House Art Clubs that had been in my mind for some time. I asked all five art clubs, 75 children aged between 5 and 15, to contribute line drawings of the Gallery and its surrounds, along with the creatures real and imagined who might live there.Surrounds 2

I compiled elements of all their work into a 16 page colouring book which they took home for Christmas.

Here, you see a page from the animals spread and another from the Gallery buildings and features spread.  Equally appealing was to spend a few hours when I'd finished, colouring it in on photoshop!
