This is the first of the HK Mail Art Club - Bugs and Insects
We spend so much time indoors in Hong Kong and often miss the incredible diversity and excitement right under our noses!
Colour pencils, markers or paint to colour the paper
Scissors - there are tiny tabs you will need to snip to get the insects out of the sheet.
Glue - white glue or a glue stick are great for this project!
There is no colouring guide or even detailed instructions about how to put these bugs together. This is done on purpose. Explore, colour how you want, experiment and enjoy. If you want to make more than one of each bug, then trace the pieces on another set of card and cut them out with scissors!
NOTE: there is an option for educational groups to bulk purchase or to have a special piece designed for you. Please get in touch!
I am a working artist, educator and a voice over talent. I teach art related classes in my studio in Prince Edward.
Everyone should have artistic expression in their lives, not only people with spare time or big budgets. Sustainable materials are my preference.
In 2020 - 21 my work has taken a new direction. Moving away from watercolour I am finding the play of light and shadow created by hanging paper and lightboxes to be pulling me down a new path. Making complex ideas into single shapes is a challenge and whan I find that perfect shape that conveys a whole story it is incredibly exciting. The more I work with paper, the more possibilities emerge.
In response to the lack of face to face classes during the time of Covid, the HK Mail Art Club came into being - a weekly mail out of DIY art kits to do at home. The kits invite you to assemble, colour and construct paper based figures, while learning about the natural world.
