Day and Night

Grade 3 students have been learning about Day and Night in their classrooms. To coincide with this, they created their own rotating Earth, with one side day and one side night. They achieved the look of day and night, by sponge painting with light and dark colours either side. Earth was placed in the centre and made with blue and green tissue paper on clear contact. The result was very effective, especially with the detail of the white pencil on the dry sponge painting of stars, sun, moon etc. Such a great display in our school corridor.

Sail Away, sail away!

Grade 2 students have been learning about Water and have made these amazing collages using different techniques. They used sponges and mixed different paints, white, blues and greens to make the colours of the ocean.  Once dry, the students tore the painted paper to create waves for their boats. Just love the patterned paper boats sailing away! 

Melbourne City Scapes by Grade 6

I am just in love with these Melbourne City Scapes recently completed by our Grade 6 students! They were heading into Melbourne for their city camp so what a great idea to create a silhouette of our wonderful city. The students created their silhouette with black paper and carefully cut around tall buildings, windows and bridges. They then added gorgeous gold and silver papers/pens for detail to their buildings. The background was created with foil using waterbased textas, sprayed with water, then transferred onto white paper. The results are just stunning as you can see!
