Grace Cossington Smith inspired Sydney Harbour Bridge

Year 5 have been studying the work of Australian Artists who have used the Sydney Harbour Bridge in their work. One artist in particular, was Grace Cossington-Smith. Year 5 looked closely at the artist's depiction of the bridge being constructed and her misty, watercolour and pastel techniques.

The Bridge in Curve, 1926.
Year 5 created their own Sydney Harbour Bridge artworks in her style. Students had to try to imagine what Sydney would have looked like in the past.
