Irena Kirpichnikova came to work with the Year 4 classes for the day, focusing on Aboriginal Portraits. Even though the students have used chalk pastels in the past, they were introduced to new and exciting techniques. Working with this medium on black paper was a welcome change and inspiring.
They followed step by step instructions to create an amazing portrait. Throughout the workshop Irena guided them through the hidden mathematical structure of our faces, giving them an awareness of proportion and placement when drawing a face. Her enthusiasm was infectious and the students gained an incredible amount of confidence throughout the day.
