Grade 5 began 2019 with directed drawing of Koi Fish, which resembles luck and good wealth. Thanks to @deepspacesparkle for this great lesson. Students really concentrated on their drawing and designing their fish. I loved the warm colours used in the fish which complemented the cool backgrounds of the ponds and water lillies. A peaceful piece of art for all to admire.

In Term 3, Grade 3 students used chalk pastels to create a landscape of Uluru. This lesson focused on perspective and blending. Students, firstly sketched with pencil, the foreground and background, followed by blending chalk pastels in a variety of colours. Blue dye finished the sky off to complement the reds/browns and yellows in the picture. They are currently on display in the main corridor.
Congratulations to Stephanie, in Year 6, for winning fifth prize in the Casey Council’s Art Competition, for the launch of Mental Health Week 2017 at the Lynbrook Community Centre! Your stunning picture of ‘What Brings Joy to Your Life’, reflected a visual image that related perfectly to feelings of happiness for many people, including those attending the presentation. It was certainly a very proud moment for your mum and grandparents seeing you receive your well deserved award.
During the final week of term two, the children from Year 1-6, were delighted to be involved in fun and entertaining workshops presented by local, famous artist, Tony Sowersby. The children particularly enjoyed drawing popular cartoon characters and creating artworks based on letters of the alphabet, and by adding detail to basic sketches of everyday objects.
The junior school children were fascinated to learn about colours at the beginning of the year!
