Create Your Own Artwork

Here are some ideas to get you started.

  • Explore the 2018 gallery of past winners to get inspiration for creating your own artwork.
  • Have a think about your previous experiences creating art. What are your favourite methods?
  • What do you like to use (pencils, crayons, collage, paint etc.)? You might like to try blending a few styles together.
  • Create an artwork that explores the theme Speaking and Listening from the Art
  • Think about the different ways that you can interpret, understand and creatively express this theme. Share your voice and why you think it is important to listen to the voices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
  • Think carefully about the medium, colours, designs and symbols you want to use to creatively express your understanding of the theme Speaking and Listening from the Heart.  In your artist statement, share with us about your artwork and explain why you chose to creatively express your ideas in the way that you did.
  • Use your own ideas to create your artwork. Make sure it represents the theme
  • and explores reconciliation in Australia
