Bilibin Artwork in Hazel Class

In art, we have been learning about the Russian artist, Ivan Bilibin. His first inspirations came from Russian folk and fairy tales and he was later commissioned to illustrate a series of books of fairy tales.  Here are some examples of his work.

We spent some time looking at the borders of Bilibin’s art work and tried to recreate some as well as designing our own.After that, we designed our own pictures based on Bilibin’s work using characters from the story, Ivan and the Firebird.  We used acrylic paints to paint our designs onto canvasses and then decorated the borders.
