Home to City

the following work was created by a year 8 Art class. They explored the work by Annalise Rees and created their own hand drawn interpretations. They used Google Earth to find images of their own street and then mapped their way to the CBD. They learnt about concepts of foreground, midground and background to create the effect that their buildings were receding into the distance. This was a great task that not only integrated specific art skills but also made it possible for the students to explore the places in Adelaide with great detail.

The houses on my street

A group of year 8’s at the start of the year investigated the work by Annalise Rees and created their own abstracted house interpretation. The students used Google Earth to locate their own home and sketch the houses on their street. They learnt about negative space drawings and created a layered artwork.

Postcards

The following drawings were create by a class of year 8’s. Their task was to imagine what the rest of a landscape could have been outside of a found postcard image. This as a drawing exercise not only pushed their own boundaries but also showed an insightful approach to creative thinking.

Portraiture

Recently a class of year 9’s have completed a painting and drawing unit with the genre of portraiture. They created these paintings using a restricted colour palette, using only 3 colours and black and white. They learnt about tonal differences in mixing colours as well as achieving cool and warm tones. The students showed a strong enjoyment and motivation when creating these artworks. The paintings are currently on display in our front admin building.

Flower Study

Students in year 7 have been creating still-life drawings of a variety of flower types. They have applied multiple painting/drawing techniques when exploring forms and colour. Students have shown much engagement in learning new methodologies and exploring their own abilities.
