Event Overview: Explore the extraordinary Pictures Collection of the State Library of NSW in this exciting new series of video conferences held on Tuesdays (and one Wednesday) during Term 2. Highlighting five different artworks from the collection, this series will reveal their fascinating back stories before leading students in a step by step art making workshop. Join Andrea Sturgeon, a specialist art educator, as she guides your students through the Pictures Collection and into a workshop to create original artwork inspired by what they have seen. The second workshop in the series examines Margaret Ackland's work 'Pyrmont Bridge 1984'. Investigate the power of lines and shapes in this dynamic abstract artwork, and use these ideas to create an artwork inspired by images from the State Library photographic collections. Please note students will complete their artwork post video conference.
