Afternoon Art Club at Home with Goulburn Regional Art Gallery
Still Life with Sally O’Neill
Join Sally as she helps you create a still life masterpiece at home using whatever you can find.
Presented as part of a very special partnership between STA and Goulburn Regional Art Gallery.
We recommend you watch the whole video before you get started.
You will need:
Set up your still life
Warm up Sketching
Create your Masterpiece
Take some Still Life photographs of your objects using a phone or ipad. Move around and take pictures from different angles to create new arrangements. You could explore your image further by adjusting settings in editing software like snapseed.
Use a stop motion animation app like Stop Motion Studio to animate your still life.
Use tape and Blue tack to build a sculpture or assemblage from your still life items. You may need to introduce more items to make a large or more complex work. Check out our assemblage videos for more ideas.
Afternoon Art Club is a nine week program of creative fun and learning. Each term, projects are designed to develop children’s skills to express ideas through making, encourage enjoyment in the process of creating and to develop and refine art making skills. A variety of projects are worked on and designed in response to the interests of the class and may include drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture, performance and new media.
We will be celebrating the end of year with a small celebration in our Afternoon Art Club groups in the final week of the year. We will have some fun Christmas inspired art and craft and music to enjoy.
Bookings for this program are made directly with the Gallery.
