Creativity Challenge 1
Monday 13th May at 10am, live from Dundee Contemporary Arts
Learners will have the opportunity to tour Johanna Basford’s exhibition ‘Wonderlands’ at Dundee Contemporary Arts through storytelling. Johanna draws intricate designs and the storyteller will model how to look carefully for detail, capture those details in words and create a Wondertale!
Creativity Challenge 2
Week 2 of the Look, Capture, Create project coincides with ‘Walk to School Week’ and ‘Scotland’s Nature Festival’. This Glow TV broadcast gives learners the opportunity to journey on an inky adventure with the Scottish illustrator/designer Johanna Basford to learn about her art techniques, what inspires her designs and her success commercially.
Johanna will share how she looks for detail and inspiration in nature, how she captures this and creates beautiful hand drawn inky designs.
She will share her
- influences and sources of inspiration.
- sketchbooks, techniques and choice of media.
- approach to collaboration
- ability to be observant, use her eyes to spot natural treasure
Johanna will invite the young people of Scotland to become a Co-Creator by drawing their own inky picture of a creature which lives on land or in water to create a Glow stampede of fish, flora or fauna which reflects the beauty and diversity of wildlife in Scotland. The creature could be real or imaginary.
Creativity Challenge 3
During week 3 of the ‘Look, capture, create’ interdisciplinary learning experience we will be joined by a scientist/mathematician from Dundee University live in the Dundee Botanic Gardens to learn more about the importance of Scottish Biodiversity and how we can do simple things to help nature survive and grow. We will look in particular at the types and purposes of the beautiful patterns nature creates.
Creativity Challenge 4
For the final ‘Look, capture, create’ Glow TV broadcast join the learning team at Dundee Contemporary Arts to explore the visual elements – line, shape, form, colour, tone, pattern and texture to create a design to promote Scottish biodiversity. And watch as we reveal and celebrate the Glow Stampede of Scottish fish, flora and fauna, your collaborative artwork.
