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.
