G'Day, Mate! Team Green's SLIDESHOW


G'Day, Mate!!

Finally, our last look at Australia which included the study of birds common to the land down under. 

Again, a little background first.  In light of the bush fires in Australia, I decided to have ALL Art 6/7 students at SMS explore different aspects of the country. Each team would have a different theme and project. The GREEN team researched many of the different birds found in Australia. We used the chrome books for research, then did numerous bird sketches, before exploring different techniques in watercolours, Chromatemp paint and oil pastels. We used the traditional Aboriginal Dot Painting technique to add an Aussie flavour and movement to our soft watercolour paper skies. Our birds were painted on a separate paper and embellished with oil pastels before sealing with Mod Podge and mounting in a raised relief. We took our inspiration from Juliette Williams. 

I hope you enjoy these fun bird paintings!
