This scribbling technique with different values of charcoal is very powerful in creating a very busy, emotive sketch, that whilst there is not a lot of definition still conveys information to the viewer.
KIRSTY WHITLOCK I like kirsty Whitlock's work as she uses free machine embroidery to draw and adorn a surface. She uses recycled materials like in this piece she has used a tesco bag and a newspaper to create a piece. These slogans are embroidered onto the bag and are comments about society today. I love political art as I feel it has purpose and is another way of people speaking their views. There is also layers thread sewn and left hanging to create more texture and distress the piece.
I will have the students first draw up a pattern using this template... They can add anything they want to it but they have to include 5 different "sections" within the Crest and their Family name or Surname in the banner at the bottom
