Little Yarra Steiner School:

Year 11 Remote Learning


HISTORY OF ART: Realism – 21st C

To kick off their History of Art Main Lesson this term, Class 11 were presented with a challenge: recreate an artwork from the Realist period using everyday materials found in the home (no pencils, no pastels, no paint!). Not everybody has a vast collection of art materials at home so this was a great way to level the playing field and encourage students’ creativity. Class 11 really rose to the challenge!

Aesa’s Zwierlein’s lovely reproduction of The Gleaners by Jean-François Millet was painted using coffee, a range of teas, turmeric, coriander and basil.
