Welcome to Term 3 2024 – Surrealism | Real & Imagined


In this 8-week course, students will develop and further understand the creative process and progress their art technique in a fun and supportive environment.

Then its soft pastels and the realist views of spheres in outback Australia created by artist James Gleeson with a focus on value and form. Then we dive into a world of Marc Chagall on we will experiment with wax and watercolours.


We round out the term with a look at Australian contemporary artist Abdul Abdullah and his amazing realist landscapes with caricature figures. Lastly, we look at surrealism through the eyes of Spanish artist Joan Miro where we will look at collage and mixed media.  


We will explore drawing mediums, including coloured pencils, oil pastels, watercolours, mixed media, collage, clay sculpture and soft pastels. Other techniques will include drawing, as drawing underpins most of our process art techniques.
