The beauty of birds

Photographer Leila Jeffreys’ fascination with the natural world has ignited the imagination of our Year 8 Art students to create magnificent bird drawings.

“Our students have used coloured pencil on black paper,” said Art and Design Educator Annie Phillips.

Each class had a theme of water birds, tropical birds or Australian birds. The drawings, based on Jeffreys’ photographs, are exhibited in the School Library, adding plenty of colour.

Jeffreys, a Sydney-based wildlife photographer, focuses much of her work on the beauty of birds, highlighting their unique features and colours.
