Big Post!

It’s been a very busy and exciting term getting the Art room!

We have been getting the Art room looking fantastic for Open Week, hosting weekly working bees for our upcoming Level 5 and 6 production of ‘The Pirates of the Curry Bean’, working with landscape artist and parent, Lisa Kerr, working with us on our collaborative Anzac mosaic as well as creating 600+ for the entire school for our special Anzac Day assembly. Big thank you to Lisa for working with the Level 5 and 6 students – they had such a great time. Can’t wait to see to mosaics displayed in our school grounds soon!

Fantastic Mums, Dads and Students and former Rangeview students helping us making props and costumes!

Here is a quick snapshot of what we’ve been up to this Term in our Art lessons!

Here are the Level 1 and 2 students using their own made templates to create clay leaves. We had a great time making these and are eagerly awaiting for them to be fired in the kiln. Students have loved using real-life examples of leaves, examining their colours and shapes to make their own leaf. We have used our design brief a lot in this activity. Students also made colourful portraits inspired by our Rangeview gardens. We were lucky enough to have a tour with Mr. Barr who showed us lots of fruit and vegies!

Level 3 and 4 students have been learning about colour. We have been experimenting with dry pastels and dipping them into water to create some amazing imaginary creatures.

Level 5 and 6 students are making clay mugs. We are revisiting techniques such as pinching, slipping and pinching. Photos to come soon (Need to find a pair of clean hands to take the photos).

Foundation students are creating sparkly seahorses inspired by Eric Carle! We have just enjoyed a trip to Myuna farm and have lots of interesting animal stories to tell. We are almost ready to paint and glaze our clay mice.
