During this lesson you will look at and discuss the floral still life art by some famous artists. Then you will create a vase of flowers collage using a variety of papers and materials. If you choose, this can be a gift for your mum.

What type of car do you think will be great for the future? Design, draw and cut out this car to position it onto a landscape that you have chosen to create.

Sweets will inspire your giant artwork this week! This is a great opportunity to use soft pastels for bright colours, quick coverage and to further develop your blending skills.
This week bring in some of your favourite small toys to draw—nothing too precious please. We will talk about how artists look at what they are drawing.

Cartooning is fun. Come and learn how to draw a cartoon style monster family. You will be guided step by step to create your unique family of monsters.

Did you know budgies originated in Australia? Wild budgies are green and black and live in huge flocks in outback Australia. The ones kept as pets have been bred in many different colours.

Try this lesson with a difference! Listen to dictation instructions to make this art piece based on the patterns in the art of Gustav Klimt.
