Explore the amazing birds & native plants of Australia.. we will use the beautiful bird prints by Australian printmaker Rachael Newling as our inspiration. Her prints are close up images of the daily lives of our amazing & unique flora & fauna. They also show all the stunning patterns & textures that we will try & capture in our drawings. Kids will learn about the importance of observation, proportion, using a basic grid system to help layout the drawing & how to create drawn textures to represent them in their artwork. For this workshop you will need paper, pencil, rubber & references (these will be sent via email) & optional things like, fine markers, biros, textas.
