The Amazing Taunton Live Sock Extravaganza 2016…

In the run-up to Taunton Live Arts Festival 2016, (18-24th July) Busylizzie Art is delivering free-to-schools workshops to more than 10 Taunton Deane Primary schools to generate artwork for the “Amazing Sock Extravaganza” exhibition at the Creative Innovation Centre CIC…1-8th July.

Wednesday was a brilliant day with Y6 at Parkfield Primary working through the whole design process from initial ideas…

to researching and collecting information, 

studying a living working watercolour artist & illustrator, Daniel Mackie…

learning how watercolour paint works… 

and coming up with a final design for a sock. 

That was day one with Y6 and I was ‘buzzing’ to return the next day, Thursday, to help the children work on their actual watercolour paintings….Socks for GB, Italy, Spain, France and USA for the Olympic Games, socks for artists, environmentalists, car enthusiasts, to name but a few. 

These children were inspired, engaged and a pleasure to work with! 

…..and to top the lot, Daniel Mackie himself, has liked the tweets and has been very complimentary about the work of these 10 & 11 year old children, with Busylizzie Art…

  1. I seriously love your site.. Very nice colors & theme. Did you make this web site
    yourself? Please reply back as I’m looking to create my
    own personal website and would like to find out where you got this from or exactly what the theme is named.
    Thank you!
