Year 4 - Australian Animals

 The  children had previously observed a variety of art works by Australian indigenous artists.  In particular, paintings on rocks walls which was evidence of early civilisation.  They identified types of lines, shapes , patterns and colours that were often repeated in the symbols they used. 

Students drew  lines and shapes they liked and created their own patterns and symbols, inspired by the art work they had observed.

They drew their favourite Australian animal and filled it with their own designs trying to create a balance between the black and white.   The background was prepared and painted to represent a cave wall and their animal was  collaged onto it.
