Event Overview: Explore the extraordinary Pictures Collection of the State Library of NSW in this exciting series of hands on, interactive video conferences held on Thursdays during Term 4. 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 third workshop in the series examines Nathaniel Dance's 'Captain James Cook', from the 18th century. Students will explore portrait drawing as a precursor to printmaking in colonial Australia, and analyse the tonal qualities of photographic images to create a sketch portrait. Please note students will complete their artwork post video conference.
