Drawing in Charcoal and mixed media
We will make drawings of Australian natives using a combination of charcoal and paint on brown paper and newsprint.
Studying the painting style of Grace Cossington Smith, we will make a colourful still life painting emulating her style and on wooden panels
With inspiration from Indian miniatures we will design our own dry point etching to print.

Let’s look closely at the wise owl and create a detailed portrait of this beautiful bird using coloured pencils.
Decorative wall hanging
This month we will learn simple weaving techniques to create a colourful and fun wall hanging. Inspired by the colour wheel.
Using chalk pastel we will make a progressive sequence of sketches of apples being slowly eaten. Have fun munching on an apple while you draw.
Create a design inspired by the shapes and textures of feathers. Transfer your drawing to scratch foam and we will make a print on a tote bag.
