Our ‘Heidelberg Artists’ Art Show.

This Term we have been learning about our local area and the important influence of the “Heidelberg Artists”.  Some of the artists we have learned about include Tom Roberts, Arthur Streeton, Charles Conder and Frederick McCubbin.  They were famous because they used the Heidelberg landscapes as their inspiration to paint outdoors.  The artists would often go on camps to paint the beautiful Australian landscapes.

We have worked on developing many different painting techniques during our Art lessons each week.  Mrs. Mosbauer taught us how to use our paint and paint brushes to create special effects.  Mrs. Mosbauer also showed us many artworks by the Heidelberg Artists.  We learned that each art work has a story.  We can also tell our own story about art too.

On Thursday we invited all our families and friends to come and see our beautiful art.  Our parents were very impressed with all the skills we had used to sketch, paint and draw. We loved having an audience for our Art.

What do you think about our Art work?

  1. Hi 2Tm

    I popped in to visit your “Heidelberg Artists” Art Show and I was amazed by your wonderful artwork. Like Mrs Getson, I felt like I was in the Art Gallery too!

    Mrs Mosbauer has done a great job teaching you different painting techniques that you have all used so creatively. Do you have a favourite technique?

    I didn’t know that the artists went on camps to paint the landscapes. Aren’t we lucky that we live in the Heidelberg area where they painted! What do you think they would think of our landscape now?

    Congratulations on your fabulous Inquiry Unit Ms Tieppo, Mrs Mosbauer and 2TM.

    • Dear Miss Y,

      Thank you for your lovely comment. We are glad that you went to our art show. We hope that you liked all our paintings.

      We liked using the dot and flick technique. We needed to hold the paint brush in a special way.

      If the Heidelberg Artists were painting now, they would paint schools, parks, ovals, buildings, stadiums, lakes, shops and swimming pools.

      Anthony would like to know if you have been to a real art gallery?

  2. Thank you so much for your wonderful art exhibition. Jasmine, Daisy and I really enjoyed wondering around the gallery of pictures admiring the skills everyoneso cleverly used. We felt like we were in the Melbourne Art Gallery.

    • Hi Mrs. Getson,
      It is so nice to have a parent from 2tm leaving us a comment. I am very proud of all the fantastic artwork too! Mrs. Mosbauer did such a great job teaching 2TM so many new painting skills. Well done to the parents for supporting our special event.
      From Ms. Tieppo
