Journal 4 – Planning day and a visit to Blackbooks

Agenda for #1 planning day.

Will be visiting " Black books", in Glebe with Daphne (AEA) in the morning. After which I will go and see Leo

(Local Artist). I hope to get some inspiration from Leo's artwork and possibly even be able to use some of his expertise and art in my lessons.

Transcript - Explanation of Artefacts at Blackbooks

AEA:
This is a Bunda or a Nulla Nulla. It's done by Leroy Wright, all the artefacts. This is a Bullroarer. These are Bullroarers. The emu eggs that have been painted, and you can carve them as well. These are clap sticks that have been done by Leroy.
Teacher:
They are only an example of what Leroy does. These are some of the 3D artworks that would be very interesting to use in our Maths unit. We'll see what we can do.

3rd May– Planning Day #1

BLACKBOOKS: Very helpful. Unfortunately there wasn't a lot of resource material I found that would be useful to my unit. The resource that is currently on order I will be sent to view, Aboriginal perspective across the curriculum. Cost is $71.50. The person there that I was speaking with was Chris, she was trying to rack here brain, trying to think of any person that might be able to help. Chris was able to give me Marie Mowbray, Port Jackson District Office, as a person with good ideas on different sorts of materials that can be used in Aboriginal art. I did purchase a resource that might be useful, Quandamooka the art of Kath Walker. It has a section of artworks that could possibly be used when making 2D into 3D art. It was only $21.45. I really liked the art.
