WANT to create amazing artwork with your fingertips? There’s an app for that.
Sleaford iPad artist Jason Wilsher-Mills has been running workshops throughout the area over the past few months, funded by Arts Council England, teaching his skills and techniques to local people.
He has been working with over 30 schools since May and taught more than 2,000 people, both children and adults, and each Friday he has held sessions at the National Centre for Craft and Design in town to show how to create art work using an iPad.
The budding artists were able to create self portraits, edit photos of themselves and other works of art using a simple iPad app, one which Jason uses to create his own artwork inspired by renowned artist David Hockney.
Jason said that the sessions had exceeded all his expectations and added: “The feedback I have received is 100 per cent positive. It has been amazing.”
The last day of the show will be on Sunday and the artwork Jason and his guests at the workshop have been creating can be viewed at www.facebook.com/JasonWilsherMillsNccdIPadCommunityArt.
As the project has been so successful, Jason is hoping to receive further sponsorship so he can take more iPads out and support more children, introducing them to new media and create art using iPads.
