Faceless amongst the masses – a personal response to the refugee crisis

You may remember a few weeks ago a post here about the art  class ‘Spring Review’ at AgeUK led by WEA tutor Margot Shores.

here is the post previously.

Faceless Amongst the Masses by George, student

In the post, I described how the class had looked at world issues including refugees and the threat of terrorism as a starting point for their work.

One student was unable to attend that day however she has kindly shared her artwork for the blog.

Using the theme of ‘line’ as a starting point the class explored how line can be used to produce different effects in artwork. The student then took this and developed the picture further into this stunning watercolour inspired by the Syrian refugee situation.

We think the picture is extremely impressive and powerful, and certainly complements the other amazing artwork produced in the Painting and Drawing course.

Details of Margot Shore’s September courses will be published soon in the brochure ( out mid July) or you can ring the Lincoln Office on 01522 522 478 for further details.

We welcome any future artwork contributions from students for inclusion on the blog, which can be sent to lincolnweablog@gmail.com .
