8TH CLASS - ‘IN THE LANDSCAPE I SEE …’ by Marja de Jong, Anna Toljamo and Ilse van den Berk

ART CLASS DRAWING AND PAINTING

The series of workshops in the 8th class have taken place during autumn, winter and spring 2010-2011.
This series has started with the visit of the group of the exhibition SUOMEN MAISEMAA (Finnish Landscape) by the artist Ilse van den Berk. The photo installation in art centre Saksala ArtRadius is the result of many observation walks around Saksalanharju and Kirkonkylä of the artist. Her personal impression is part of the reflection of the students during their artistic process.

During the visit of the exhibition the students also visited the CHILDREN’S-LABYRINTH with the assignment to register the way they were going through the labyrinth including the art works and other relevant objects they see.

After this introduction the students have been making photos of their environment at home or around the school.

In the first lessons the students have collected visual information about their habitat. In different sketches they explore their view on the subject, the details and perspective.
In the second series the students selected some of their in light grayscale printed images to transfer them into the landscape they are looking for. Painting on a blurred image is in a way experimental. It is not possible to use the under layer as a coloring picture, it only directs to some shapes or composition and it intends to open another view on the landscape. It was a challenge to add a new form (from another photo) into the landscape.

Even the art works are small (14x20 cm) the students needed more lessons finish the works.

The third series has started in March with sketching after a model (the person in front of you), these sketches will be part of a bigger landscape painting in which the relation between person and landscape have to visualize.
