9 Week Term

Cost: $208


Over the 9 week term, students will learn about the elements of line, space, form and texture through a variety of processes and materials.


Inspired by nature, students will learn how to incorporate what they see into what they make. The focus of this class is to develop each students own creative expression. They will be encouraged to use their imaginations whilst practising different methods of drawing, painting and collage.


We will be making observations from example images, looking at shape and form, breaking them down into elements and recombining them into compositional works of art.

  • WEEK 1, 2, 3 - DRAWING and COLLAGE, Inspired by Nature


    Week 1 -We will begin by looking at images of Nature. Students will do some observation drawings, studying the forms and natural shapes that appear in nature and then drawing them.


    Week 2- We will create collages and explore textures using dierent materials .Referencing the nature drawings from week 1, students will think about how dierent materials can be used to make a composition of their artwork


    Week 3- Using the observation drawings from week 1 and collage from week 2, students will then deconstruct their work, breaking down what they see into shapes to create an abstract composition.


    WEEK 4, 5, 6 - WATERCOLOUR PAINTING, Inspired by Nature


    Week 4- Will build on the drawing skills explored in the first weeks, and introduce students to painting techniques. Using images of nature as inspiration, students will create a series of quick oil resist paintings.


    Week 5 -Using the painting techniques learnt in week 4, students will begin a larger composition that introduces more colours to express features of their environment.


    Week 6- Students will complete their work on the compositions they started in week 5, using the skills they’ve learnt in previous weeks.


    WEEK 7, 8, 9 - Imagining Nature and its Environment


    Week 7- Students will create a hybrid environment  by taking dierent elements from their previous sketches and drawings.  They will do a series of sketches to create and refine their artwork.


    Week 8- Drawing from their imagination, students will incorporate the creature and it’s environment into a larger composition. They will be encouraged to use the techniques and processes learnt in the previous weeks, embracing the methods they enjoyed most.


    Week 9 -Students will continue and finish working on their final compositions started in week 8.
