Art Spark

With every passing second we age; and with every second we become more knowledgeable. Each new generation learns from the past to help us advance in the future. Can you think of something that you’re more knowledgeable about than your parents?

Discover the works in Head Over Head by Australian artist Tony Ameneiro as he captures the human connections with life and death in his drawings and prints, and ‘capture a moment in time’ with classmates through a series of fast-paced drawing activities.
