Art Activity with Kim Amis

Apr 17, 2019 | Blog

The Art circle organises a programme of varied monthly evenings where people can learn and have a go at various art activities. These pictures illustrate one such evening we held in March 2018.

On that occasion the ever resourceful Kim Amis , Sculptor, Artist, and City and Guilds tutor, encouraged us to take inspiration from the 19th Century artist Henri Rouseau.

She invited us to create our own colourful wild animal collages by experimenting with miniature jungle animals, pot plants, coloured paper, crayons, scissors and glue. From this we constructed a jungle world formed of cut-out animals woven in amongst the foliage. It was a fun, absorbing and thoroughly sociable evening during which Enfield Art Circle members produced some fascinating results in just two hours, as can be seen from the pictures taken on the day.
