Art classes with Ken Done
Ken Done is one of Australia’s most famous artists, with an acclaimed career that dates all the way back to 1980. His vibrant acrylic paintings often feature Sydney icons like the Harbour Bridge, and have featured in exhibitions in cities all over the world from Tokyo to New York. And now to help you keep the kids entertained, this local legend has released three activity sheets online - one each for kids aged three to six, six to nine and nine to eleven.
Younger kids can have a go at recreating Done’s paintings, and add their own critters to his Morning Dive artwork. Older students will learn about the use of colour and shape, and hone their creativity with a number of tasks.
