Colour Investigation

Prep students were introduced to the element of colour and its use in artworks. The use of warm and cool colours was discussed in the artwork of featured artists and explored in their own making. The students worked with ink, acrylic paint and collage.

Line Exploration

Prep students drew and painted various lines with a range of mediums, exploring how line can be used to express different feelings and to describe objects they observe.

Texture Exploration

Using a variety of materials and methods including clay and frottage, the girls explored how texture in artworks could be real or simulated. A still life image was created using textural collage, exploring the textural qualities of different surfaces. The work of author and artist Jeannie Baker inspired the students to use a range of materials to build up their collages.

Experimental textural artworks were also created using tissue, inks and monoprinting.
