Artists of the Week

K – 2 Artists of the Week

Brandon To KW

Kindergarten have been exploring colour and line. After reading the book ‘Lines that Wiggle’, Brandon created a sculpture with many different types of lines. He thought carefully about how a sculpture can be viewed from all angles and made his work interesting and unique. Fantastic work Brandon!

Lachlan Baird 2B

Year 2 have been investigating drawing figures from observation and adding form. Lachlan arranged his mannequin into a pose and then carefully drew what he saw. He explored blending two different shades of oil pastel effectively to create the idea of form. Great work Lachlan!

3 – 6 Artists of the Week

Year 3 have been busy studying amphibians. They looked at a number of artworks by Australian Artist John Olsen. He is currently having an exhibition called – ‘You Beaut Country‘ at the Art Gallery of New South Wales. The boys enjoyed looking at his frogs and discussed the personality of his frogs.

These artworks show some beautiful pen and ink line work, as well as the blending of the inks to make new colours.

Congratulations to Liam Ross and Luca Celona Bower for showing us some excellent techniques.
