Create a Home Gallery with Amanda Ralph
Join artist and University of Hertfordshire MA Fine Art student, Amanda Ralph, to make window displays breathing new life into old objects lying around your home. Create a display of your objects, as you might find in a gallery or museum. You could use a windowsill, mantelpiece or table.
Suitable for all ages, young children will need an adult to work with.
Share your creations with UHArts on all socials at @UniHertsArts and with Amanda:
#CreateItShareIt & #UHArtsatHome
You will need:
- Some old objects/things from around the house
- A surface to make a display (e.g. windowsill/table/mantel piece shelf)
- A camera (optional)
Step by Step:
See how Amanda has arranged objects in her home and titled them:
Arranging objects with flowers.
Arranging objects through materials and colour.
Arranging her husband’s toys.
Arranging objects by her favourite colour yellow.
Take it further:
Turn your display into a still life photography project (a still life is a series of objects grouped together that do not move). Tate explains it here. Take several photos, at numerous angles maybe even at different times of day and share your favourites. You can see how the light changes and creates shadows.
Don’t forget to share your creations - (ask a parent/carer if you’re not on social media) - @UniHertsArts using #CreateItShareIt #UHArtsatHome. We’ll make sure to share whatever you send us!
