Art Show 2012

It took 3 days to set up and 1 hour to take down! It was hard work, but it was a very rewarding experience not only for myself but for our students. Thank you to though who came and celebrated the visual arts program with us!

I teach Prep and Year 3-6 and Andrea and Jo teach Year 1 and 2.

Students have created such wonderful pieces of work this year and I am extremely proud of what they have accomplished. I am excited to see what masterpieces students are going to create this term.

Prep Homes

I saw this lesson on and fell in love with it.

Preps were inspired by neighbourhoods or communities. 

Day 1: We talked about homes and talked about the characteristics of homes. Students used stamps, toothpicks, caps and clay tools to add details/texture to their home. We used air dry clay to create our homes. 

Day 2: Preps painted their homes with either cool or warm colours using acrylic paint.

Year 4 Sculptures

This term, students have been creating the most amazing sculptures. Students worked extremely hard on their sculptures and some even came in during lunch time to work on their sculpture so they could put it in the art show.

Students roughly followed the schedule, but some students were painting, while other students were plastering and building... Busy busy busy!

2 Classes: Students planned their sculptures based on four categories (character, pop art, surrealism and cubism). Students brainstormed 4 different sculptures and then took their favourite drawing and planned a skeleton, drew a front and back view and colour drawing.

2 Classes: Students used various materials including recycled goods and lots of masking tape to create the skeleton of their sculpture.

2 Classes: Students plastered their sculpture using modroc.

2 Classes: Students painted using acrylic paint and decorated their sculpture using goggly eyes, feathers magic clay etc.

*** Students missed one class due to Districts

On their way to be set up for the art show!
