Sidney Nolan, one of the most famous Australian artists, uses a modern square technique. He used different materials for making his art like paper and canvas.
This painting shows the courthouse where Ned Kelly was sentenced to death by Judge Barry.
Ned Kelly tells the Judge that soon when he dies he will meet with the Judge.
Sadly two weeks later the Judge died.
The courthouse is in St Kilda. You can see the port through the window. The red and white floor was in a house where Sidney Nolan was once.
I like this painting because, it shows a very special moment of Australian’s history.
Jeffrey Smart uses a smooth painting style.
He makes mostly crafted paintings.
Quick fact: he worked as an Art teacher in Adelaide then moved to Arezzo, Italy to live
I like this work because it is detailed and it has a good mix of colours
The Creation Of Adam by MichaelAngelo. The people under God are the angels.
He has painted the picture on the ceiling in the vatican. He has used very smooth brush strokes. I like this painting because it is very famous. I also like it because it looks like Adam is close to Heaven and God is close to earth.
One of the techniques Pro Hart uses is to be quite messy but his paintings turn out to be beautiful.
I like the Country Race Meeting because I like to race and I love horses and I think its fun and creative because you can do all sorts of things for the dirt and horses.
Pro Hart throws some of his paint around. Pro Hart also does cannon paintings and uses paint guns for some of his paintings.
We had a wonderful day visiting the galleries. Our inquiry unit at the moment “Express Yourself ” is all about how people express how they feel , or share messages through art.
