Charles Blackman

During Visual Arts we have been inspired by Charles Blackman. He was born in 1928 in Sydney and he is famous for his Schoolgirl series which depict many school buildings.

First, we looked at images of different schools and selected the one we liked best. Then we sketched the school using pencil on a large piece of paper from observation and painted it. Miss Azzopardi also took a photo of us which we cut out and added to our painting.

Do you think your artwork is similar to the school you were observing? Why/why not? 

What lines, shapes and colours did you use in your artwork?
