ART CAPTAINS FOR 2017
Mrs V and I are very excited about the art captains role this year! We have been blessed with not one but two art captains who already shown great leadership skills and enthusiasm in their endeavours to be successful school leaders.
Well done Morgan and Jay!
Every year the Lions Club of Australia hold a competition promoting world peace. The entrance age is 10 to 13, and every child in grades 5 and 6 were asked to create a poster to promote this theme.
Three posters were chosen by a member of the Lions Club to represent Rangeview Primary School. The photo above is of our very talented artists, whose designs were chosen.
WE DID IT!
It was like making a silk purse out of a sow’s ear ( no offence to the staff who generally fill the corridor with displays) when we transformed our main corridor into ‘The Rangeview Art Gallery’.
When you exhibit over 600 pieces of beautiful student art work it will always be an amazing sight!
If you haven’t yet visited our gallery, do yourself a favour. It is well worth a visit!
OUR MURAL PAINTING PROGRESS
I can’t begin to express how exciting it is to watch the ideas that began as drafts, take shape on our Mural Painting. I am so proud that our grade five and six children will have a legacy that will continue on at Rangeview, long after they have all left! What a wonderful way to leave your mark on a school!
What a great morning the Grade 5 and 6 students had working on the beginning of a new school project with our Mural artist Simon Dransfield! I can’t wait to see what unfolds!
(Word to self: Children and paint can be a dangerous combination, as pointed out by our resident hardworking handy man, who bemoaned the fact that we now have white footprints outside our art room door! Must remember to talk about how to remove paint quickly from unwanted surfaces!)
Next term is going to be very special for our Grade 5 and 6 students.
A young artist Simon Dransfield will be joining our classes and working with the students on a collaborative mural.
I have seen some of the work that Simon has done and I can’t wait to see what the children will create under the guidance of this amazing mentor!
Stay tuned and keep your eyes open for glimpses of our Artist in Residences handiwork!

2D SHADOW BOXES
The grade 5 children have been looking at the elements of line, movement, shape and pattern. This study led into the creation of the most amazing 2-dimensional pieces of work. We have hidden them all away, not to be seen until our inaugural art show in term four! However here is a sneek peek of what to expect!
