Inspired by Nature is a visual arts enrichment program in the creative domain for high potential and gifted public school students in Year 3 and Year 4. This one day learning experience is held at the Royal National Park. Students will explore the local environment, learn art theory, and produce a range of ephemeral and permanent artworks. They will investigate artists such as Andy Goldsworthy and his rich diversity of forms, structure, patterns and textures.
With exploration during an outdoor nature walk, students will gain a rich source of ideas to create artworks and an appreciation of art. Students will study the Elements and Principles of Design to gain a deeper understanding of how to create interesting and engaging artworks. They will experiment with and learn how to use different techniques associated with natural forms to create a range of artworks.
The operation of this program is contingent on advice provided by the NSW Department of Education in consultation with NSW Health. All activities will adhere to the DoE COVID-19 guidelines and restrictions.
