Hello lovelies! Hope you are all keeping safe and well.
During the lockdown in the Spring I was looking for creative things to do at home and I was recommended to join a Facebook group the ‘Bluebeany Art Club’.
Bluebeany is based in Hull, Yorkshire and the art is a very impressive expression of the theatrical role playing in art. It is a very dream like imagination of both good and bad dreams. I think it must be the theatrical side that appeals so much to me and the mixture of iconic people, animals and vivid colours.
The art club, during lockdown, ran on a Sunday afternoon. A theme was given beforehand and we were encouraged to produce a piece of art work of our choice and then share it, if we desired, on social media.
There was also a themed Spotify soundtrack to accompany the club and the music was so much just my type of music that I saved the playlists and still enjoy listening to the compilation.
As lockdown in some areas is still happening and groups and clubs are still not being held, in person, I am delighted to see that there is an Art Club planned for Halloween! I love Halloween and I am so disappointed that I will not be able to celebrate as is my norm, so having an event on the actual day to plan and look forward to is just perfect!
Any ideas on what I could do? For the Magical Creatures theme I dressed as a mermaid, used make up to achieve scales on my face and body, stretching fishnets over the part of the body you wish to ‘scale’ and using greens, blues and glitter to achieve the mermaid look. I used eyelash glue to stick shells onto my body and face and then I decided to get in the empty bath and have my photograph taken as a ‘lockdown mermaid’. So as you can see I love dressing up so might go for a visual theme as any excuse to dress up is a bonus for me!
I would love it if you would join me at the art club. Any type of art is encouraged and celebrated so let us get virtually together and have a spooktastic time!
