      Drawing

      Yr 7 – 10

      Project 1 & 2: Natural World (6 weeks) Students will learn advanced drawing and colour techniques through the theme of ‘natural world’. Using graphite, students will start by drawing from reference and practicing perfect proportion. To continue, students will explore the art of Studio Ghibli to learn mixing/blending colour techniques with a focus on perspective and depth. Mastering these techniques will produce stunning reflections of our natural world.  Class Times

      Drawing

      Yr 3 – 6

      Project 1 & 2: Drawing Animals – An exploration of Real and Fanciful. (6 weeks) Students will firstly learn to identify basic shapes in animals to build realistic sketches and gain a thorough understanding of graphite, pencil and watercolour techniques. Students will then learn to exaggerate features, constructing fanciful versions of animal life and then play with basic expressions to apply to their individual characters. This program is a great opportunity to not only learn drawing techniques, but also expand student’s personal creativity and problem solving abilities.  Class Times

      Art Club

      Yr 3 – 6

      Project 1: Matisse (2 week duration) Colour, shape and balance. Students will be challenged to bring these elements together, as Matisse did, in a harmonious presentation. Once these techniques have been practiced, students will then be able to extend them into a Matisse-inspired magnetic sculpture.

      Project 2: Mary Blair (4 week duration) Mary Blair was prominent in producing art and animation for the Walt Disney Company and kids will mimic her techniques through collage, paint and drawing. With a great focus on shape, this program will look at how shapes can work together in collage to build an image and how we can use shape in illustration to create unique character art. Kids will create their own Disney 2D Character and then transform it into a 3D sculpture.  Class Times

      Art Buzz

      Kindy – Yr 2

      Project 1: The Cat (2 week duration) Paint and collage are the focus in this cat creation. Kids will build an image layering custom painted strips of paper to complete a beautifully detailed masterpiece on artboard.
