All of our students have been getting ready for Book Week! The theme this year is Find Your Treasure! So much fun and great activities for everyone. We have been reading the short listed books for 2018 and here is just a snap shot of some of the great art that has come from them. Some are still a work in progress!
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!
Preps have made the cutest aerial snowmen for Winter! The background is using pastel resist with white pastel and blue water colours. The students were able to trace and cut circles to create their snowman and paste foam on the back of each circle to give a 3D effect. They loved using the chalk pastels and a sprinkling of glitter to finish! Have a look at them in our school corridor next time you are in!
Grade 5 students really enjoyed making their Ned Kelly doll. Starting with crayons rubbed over concrete to make a textured body, they then cut fabric to make the clothing. The background was sketching of gum trees into printing foam. The students chose the colours green, brown and black to print with. Messy but fun and as you can see very effective.
Grade 2 students have been looking at all things Transport and On the Move. They completed some gorgeous hot air balloons, which involved lots of paper weaving and smaller vehicles such as cars, buses and planes with icypole sticks. Love the display of them, hovering over James Rizzi inspired houses. Such a burst of colour in our school corridor.
