Not so long ago, we read the creation story from the Book of Genesis in the Bible. As we read, we focused on visualising what was happening in the text. We then viewed and critically discussed some artwork by artists from a vast range of eras and techniques. In our discussions, we shared the different elements of the creation story that the artists portrayed in their work, and we discussed the techniques they used to convey their message through art. We then created our own pieces of art, based on what we had visualised while reading the creation story. We drew inspiration from some of the artwork we had viewed too. Below is a film which contains each piece of art created by the members of our class, and if you listen carefully while you view the art, you will hear us giving our own artistic explanation of what we have drawn, why we have drawn it, and what artistic techniques we used. We hope you enjoy viewing it!
