Inspirational Art

We enjoy taking inspiration from famous Australian artists to create our own works of art. Today Fred Williams was our inspiration. He loved to paint the rich colours of Australian rainforests. We used brush techniques for the background and cardboard edges dipped in black paint to design the trees.
It was fun and messy but the results were amazing.

Silk Painting

We are preparing for the Sacrament of Confirmation this term. We each designed and created our own symbol that represented the significance and importance of Confirmation to us.

The first step was to draw the outline of our symbol in a pink texta. Next we used wax to draw on the silk and then finally we filled the design with colour. It was a wonderful experience creating this beautiful artwork together. The silk banners will be displayed in the Church on the night of our Confirmation.
