My Celtic Art Project
This is my contribution to my “Who are the Celts’ course at Oxford Department for Continuing Education, week 5 ‘Celtic Art’ (2017). At the end of a demanding study week the participants were challenged to make their own Celtic art, a drawing, woodwork, or poem, whatever your prefer.
I was always in awe when I saw Celtic art in museums but I was never challenged or commissioned to make Celtic art. For doing this project, I had to remove my anxiety for rigid mathematical organization (the patterns and swirls). I liked the part of focusing on mythology, faces, and animals.
The article on the enchantment of technology, that I had to read during the course, inspired me to embrace a geometrical challenge for making Celtic patterns. I enjoyed the challenge more than I beforehand thought possible.
I used golden/silver ink-pens, ordinary Bic blue pens, art paper, a protector and many rulers.
Four wild boards, three swans, and many ducks, do you see them?

Beautiful!!! Wonderful you are learning about and creating Celtic art. I enjoyed seeing Irish art at the National Museum of Ireland Treasury.
The Celtic Art modulle in my study was without doubt my most favourite subject. I didn’t want it to stop!
Erg mooi, Paula! Ik vind het Celtic lettertype er ook mooi bij passen.
Dank je, Judy. Ik moest eerst een Keltisch letter type downloaden. Ik had daarin zelfs nog keuzes. Het was een erg leuk project dat exacte, wiskundige vaardigheden combineerde met ‘story telling’ kwaliteiten. Dit is zeker niet mijn laatste ‘Keltische’ tekening.
How beautiful, Paula! I love these.
Thank you, Luanne! It was a huge pleasure to study and explore Celtic art.
Are you not on Twitter? I thought you were.
I had a Twitter account but deleted it. But maybe it is still there. It is said you can’t delete social media accounts.
