Invertebrate art

Invertebrate art excursion

Creative arts and Science and Technology

During this Stage 2 excursion students will spend the first part of the day exploring the bushland looking for a variety of invertebrates.

Using a range of magnification equipment students will get up close and personal with an invertebrate to learn about their special features and roles in the environment.

After careful observation and study of an invertebrate, students will create an artwork on mounted canvas. This will involve the use of a variety of media including rollers, pencils, brushes and acrylic paint.
