Students studied The Renaissance and explored the ways in which art and culture saw a ‘re-birth’ during this period. They studied Dutch Delftware tiles and drew inspiration from the stylistic interpretations of tulips and various corner designs. This is reflected in their own tiles that are based on native Australian flora and painted in the recognisable Delft blue.
Through studying the various artistic responses made to the 1st World War, students developed an understanding of the role that Expressionism played in capturing and communicating new ideas in the early 20th century. Starting with a 'selfie', students were then able to apply their knowledge of Expressionism to the development of their own expressionist lino print.
