British artist – Peter Clarke

I was going to be doing a project with the grade 7s on South African artist, Peter Clarke. In my google lead research, I discovered another British Peter Clarke who was also an artist! He works primarily in collage and I really liked his stuff! I decided to do an art project based around Clarke (British Clarke) with my grade 4s! Here is my own example I could show them.5


Torn and pasted artwork

This was another idea for an adult art class. We took a photo we liked from a holiday we had been on. We tore bits out of newspapers and used these to build up a tonal base for the artwork. I used school glue mixed with water and painted it under and over all the layers so that it was very firm (almost like decopage). We then went over this permanent markers and acrylic paint.

Here is my one. I added one or two more things to it but this is basically what it looked like. 🙂
