This week, Junior 4 pupils at Lomond School enjoyed a Mackintosh inspired workshop with glass artist and former Lomond School pupil, Siobhan Healy.
Siobhan is currently exhibiting at the Mackintosh Club and introduced the pupils to artwork by Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s wife, Margaret Macdonald Mackintosh. Pupils used drawing, textured paint and gesso techniques to create their own colourful ‘Glasgow Style’ decorative panels.
Head of Art, Deborah Aitken said:
“The pupils get a huge amount of enjoyment from working with new materials in a different way whilst being inspired by a particular style. They have used Mackintosh’s Hill House as a local resource as part of previous projects but focusing on particular pieces gave them a new slant on the artists collaborations and working methods.”
Nicola Jamieson from the Mackintosh Club said:
“I am thrilled that the Mackintosh Club had the opportunity to collaborate with Siobhan Healy and Lomond School for this impressive and creative workshop. It is so important that children are given the opportunity to engage and draw inspiration from the arts. Siobhan’s exhibition ‘Inspired by Mackintosh’ has been extremely popular so much so that we are going to extend till the end of November bringing a close to the 150 celebrations.”
