Homelife Sunday No. 3 | 5 April 2020 | with Artist Julie Forrester

Build a City or Playground for Your Sketchbook Avatar

This week, watch as artist Julie Forrester makes an adventure playground for her Avatar. What are you going to build?

You will need to raid the recycling again. Look for cardboard and plastic containers (I used the tube from kitchen towels), bottles, cat food boxes....you will have your own interesting  supplies

For joining all constructions together, you will need skewers, pipe cleaners, tape, wire, cable-ties, string, yarn or other materials for joining things together - can you think of any others? 

You will need a pointy tool – remember the "bradawl" from Homelife Sunday No. 1? This time a knitting needle or a wooden skewer will do for punching holes – be sure to add in some adult help!

Make some drawings of your ideas in your sketchbooks. This will be useful when you are asking adults or others for help, too!

Please share your ideas and creations to #crawfordartgalleyhomelife it's fun to see what others do! Crawford Art Gallery might just share a few of your creations for all our followers to see?

Have fun!
