We have teamed up with Dr Norman Swan and the ABC on this special project. The Art Gallery of New South Wales has asked some of our favourite artist friends to inspire you to get creative.
Jumaadi wants to know about who, what or where is special to you. He has shared some of his own artworks so you can see what is special to him.
Special to me
Would you like to make an artwork about or for someone, something or somewhere that is special to you? I would love to see you create something using materials you already have.
I like to make art almost anytime and anywhere. I use all sorts of different materials – paint, cloth, paper, scissors and pencils – to make drawings, paper cut-outs, shadow puppets and sculptures.
I create pictures about my family, friends, people I love, pets, cars, boats, canoes, trees, fruits, houses and special places in my mind or memory. These pictures make me happy and are comforting during this time of social distancing.
Once you’ve finished making your artwork, please write a few words about it, take a photo and submit it. It doesn’t matter if it isn’t realistic, as long as it is special to you!
