Year 1 & 2 students from Kilkenny Primary School recently studied self-portraiture with a focus on Kamilaroi artist Reko Rennie. In Rennie's video work OR_AA, he uses a 1973 gold Rolls-Royce Corniche to act as an auto-portrait ('auto' means self), so the students used plasticine to create their own auto-portrait. They loved exploring features of themselves, likes, dislikes, and making connections to their work of art once completed.

Reko Rennie is a self-taught artist who works across numerous disciplines, which include painting, moving image, installation, sculpture and public art. His work is often autobiographical and draws on his Kamilaroi heritage in order to investigate his personal Aboriginal identity. Rennie's works bring forward the silenced histories of Aboriginal people, which span across generations. Referring to dispossession, loss and struggle and the ongoing impact of colonisation, his works highlight these issues and make them widely visible to the broader population.

Year 1 and 2 teacher Tara Clarke from Kilkenny Primary School used AGSA's Make and Create book to help plan her lesson.
