Storytelling Through Art...

We are learning to tell a story by creating a piece of artwork.

My piece of art tells the story when I went to Australia with my family. We lived in a lovely house. Then we went to a place where water was squirting out of the ground on a sunny day. When we got home we had to pack up our suitcase and leave on the aeroplane. I was sad to leave Australia.

Now when I look at a piece of artwork I think about the story the artist is telling us. I look at the setting, the colour, the shapes, the background and the characters.
