The Moai of Rapa Nui – March 2022 – Wednesday

The island of Rapa Nui, otherwise known as Easter Island, was sighted 300 years ago by its first recorded European visitor, Dutch explorer Jacob Roggeveen. The giant heads, known by their Polynesian name moai, number nearly 1000 and are carved from volcanic ash. We drew and painted the moai from different angles using pencils, watercolours and inks.

Some members finished work started at previous sessions or worked to their own theme. What a super variety of artwork in monochrome and vibrant colours, well done everyone!

The next session is Saturday 26th March when Fiona Spirals will be running a collage workshop. Please email Steve asap to book your place.
