This learning resource is inspired by Lucienne Rickard’s Extinction Studies (2019-2020) that was exhibited at the National Art School for the 22nd Biennale of Sydney exhibition titled NIRIN. Learn about these and other extinct species in this video and how to render their likeness in pencil, pen and ink with National Art School Alumnus and Printmaking Lecturer Angus Fisher.
This learning resource is intended for use as teacher professional development and for educational purposes only. The video provides detailed visual and verbal description to produce artworks in the classroom with students from Stages 3–6, exploring elements of the Visual Arts, English, Science and Humanities curriculum areas.
The component parts of the video are detailed in the accompanying written resource with images that can be printed for use in the classroom, and to help identify information in the video at a quick glance. Further questions and activities to extent teaching and learning strategies are also found in this resource.
The video runs for 85 minutes, with an anticipated 20 hours of research and drawing in ‘real-time’ depending on how long it takes to draw the subject matter, or to what extent teachers and students build a body of work inspired by the video.
Upon purchase, the video and PDF will be shared with you via email.
