Archibald Prize at the Art Gallery of NSW

On Wednesday the 20th of August, Year 2 went to the Art Gallery of NSW to view the Archibald Prize as part of their study of portraiture.

Here is what the boys had to say:

This morning my class and I left our school on a bus.  We went to the Art Gallery of NSW.  We went to look at the art.

First, we ate our recess food outside the Art Gallery so we were energized.  Then we lined up to go into the Art Gallery.  We saw paintings and 3D sculptures.  Next, we went down one level to see more paintings and sculptures, we were also in groups.  We also saw scary scultptures.  After that we traveled back to school.

I thought it was fun.  Also I loved all the paintings.


We are learning about portraits in art.  Portraits are of important people in your life.


On Wednesday we went to the Art Gallery.  We saw the Archibald prize and the Wynne prize.

All that’s good in me, by Vincent Fantauzzo. This portrait was a favourite of the Boys.
