Activities - Sculpture at the Gardens
1. Explore the gardens
Explore the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney using Google Streetview and try to find at least three of the statues and sculptures on display there. Start here at the Woolloomooloo Gate. Please note: This is suited for Google Chrome
2. Make a sculpture
Go on a virtual Sculpture Walk of the Royal Botanic Gardens Sydney to learn more about some of the artworks. Get creative! Choose your favourite sculpture and create your own mini version using materials that you have at home such as LEGO, wood blocks, papier mache or recyclable materials.
3. Make a sculpture using natural materials
Create a 3D work of art inspired by nature. Use play dough, modelling clay, or glue together garden materials like sticks, leaves, pine cones... You could use this example of an echidna as a guide.
4. Create an outdoor gallery
Gather all the artworks you’ve made in this Garden Art unit. Make an art label card (see activity sheet here) for each one, just like a gallery exhibition. Display your artworks along with their label cards in different spots in your garden or around the school. Then give an art tour to your family or friends, and tell them about each artwork.
