Sharing stories: Picture book

Summary of task

Students were engaged in a unit about illustrating personal stories. They explored a range of painting and drawing techniques, as well as processes and materials to develop their understanding of illustrating storybooks. The processes included printmaking (stamp printing with potatoes and relief printing with styrofoam) and sequencing images and written text to tell a story. Students practised observational drawing (graphite pencils) of themselves and their family and friends.

The students created a concertina picture book by selecting their preferred work and considering adjustments to existing work, using an art enquiry activity (giving reasons for choices). Finally, they shared their illustrated story work with an audience (class peers).
