Art Workshop

Last week’s home school group met at the regional art gallery for a workshop with local artist and children’s storybook author/illustrator Chrissy Butler. We saw an exhibition of children’s artwork from around the state that is destined to be a permanent collection at a children’s hospital in Sydney.

Chrissy talked about the artwork, and pointed out a few styles that we were going to try out ourselves. Then we went into a workshop room and set to doing our own drawings.

The kids had a great time drawing – we started by doing a single line drawing portrait of a partner, without looking at the paper. Then the kids did copies of some art from the gallery

I even did a few drawings of my own – we all had a great time :)
