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.

Lyric Prints

As part of the year 8 specialist 2D semester, they explore a range of art methods such as printmaking. This group explored reduction lino printing with the theme of song lyrics. They learnt about creating an emboss, then printing with a colour and finally adding the ‘key’, which is the black. Reducing their prints was a difficult method and also lining these up when printing was problematic. What refined prints these students have created with such complex imagery.

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.
