Join our fabulous artist and arts tutor Christina Frank as she guides you through a wonderful 8 week creative program. During the term students will explore a range of techniques/materials focusing on building foundational skills in drawing, painting, collage and modelling in clay whilst harnessing their own unique creative expression. We will draw inspiration from life & imaginations weaving in the seasons, nature, dreams and story. Participants will also get the chance to work on and develop their own projects from home.

Tell me a story

This term we will continue to explore ways art can tell a story. We will look particularly at some picture books for inspiration in creating our own artworks.

Week 1 May
about an animal (1)

We can never know what an animal is thinking. ‘What Faust Saw’ by Matt Ottley tries to imagine what is going through the mind of Faust the family dog. Humorous paintings vividly illustrate Faust’s inner world. We will try to see from the point of view of an animal you select, and create a painting over 2 weeks; imagining, planning and sketching first, then painting with acrylics.

Jeannie Baker is an illustrator and artist who has created many children’s picture books about special places.’Where the Forest Meets the Sea’ tells the story of the Daintree forest in far North Queensland.

Sketch book

I intend that this course supports the students own creative journey. They should each bring a small sketch book with them, to record and develop their own ideas, dream up their own projects, and practice drawing. Sometimes in the process of art making there is waiting time, perhaps waiting for something to dry, or to take turns in using a particular process or piece of equipment. During these times the student can be using their sketch book.
