Students get creative with Mitchell Show artwork
THEY wouldn’t call themselves the next Picasso or Van Gogh, but St Patrick’s students Mia Wilkinson and Storm Gould are pretty proud of their artwork for the 100th Mitchell Show.
The girls were just two of the many artists who helped construct the painting, which was displayed at the Mitchell Show.
Mia said it was great fun for the students, who all pitched in to make the artwork possible.
“We decided to do a painting of the town, and it was great fun because we all got to paint it together,” she said.
With some help from the teachers for the materials, the students got creative by drawing out the painting first, then using material like foil and cardboard to make different parts of the painting.
Storm said it was a long process to get the painting ready, but she loved the finished design.
“There was a lot of painting, and we used waterpaint on paper to make the flowers,” she said.
“When we finished it was beautiful, and it looked the same as the picture it was taken from.”
The artwork was part of the 1-point perspective theory the students in their art classes
