lights! camera! action !

A very busy afternoon at the "Look at me: Who am I?" photo booth with plenty of people prepared to try on groovy gloves, wavy wigs, twinkling tiaras and various superstar style accessories. The feather boa continues to be hugely popular and it is surprising how quickly the inner 'star' shines through !

Born to Boogie !
"Fetch me my longsword ..."

Ladies and gentlemen Hurry hurry hurry Step right up . .
"Who Me ?..."

Is it cos Im cool ?
"Is that a photographer I see before me?"
Abracadabra !

"I feel pretty, Oh so pretty .."

Altogether a fun afternoon with winter sunshine and a happy crowd all keen to be famous for
15 seconds.

Food Glorious Food!

Andy Warhol so loved Campbell's soup - he's supposed to have eaten it every day for years - and of course he made countless artworks inspired by it too. This Sunday, young De La Warr artists took food as their inspiration for our final Lift The Lid session of the year - joining DLWP artist Wendy Ann Greenhalgh to make sculptures, collages and a grand mural of our favourite foods.
We used pieces of paper torn from magazines to make our own baked bean and soup-can collages.

Heinz 57 - with added bat!
Cereal Box sculptures inspired by Andy Warhol's Brillo Boxes
And we invented our own soup flavours and made soup-can sculptures too.
Finally our mural celebrated our favourite foods.
What are your favourites?
