Lava rising from patterns of earth and rock

28 March 2019

Inspired by the rocks under our feet in Glasgow, from the carboniferous to the metamorphic hundreds of millions of years ago. We drew and doodled from our rock collection as well as from our imagination, thinking about lava rising up through the sea to create mountains, and rocky hills lowering to valleys and streams with animals and people active below the peaks.

Our doodles were tectonic and very craggy.

Lava rising from patterns of earth and rockWorking on black paper with oil pastels helped us explore rocky textures, and enjoy trying out some funky colour combinations. The weight and feel of the stones and rocks helped to guide us. Some of us drew or wrote words about what rocks an rocky places meant for us.

We also had time to relax, thinking about this theme and feeling nice and grounded!
