We hope you are all enjoying the beautiful art work going home this week from the Rangeview Art Show. All work has been framed, so we hope you can find a special place to enjoy the students work. Congratulations to everybody.
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!
All students are working hard in class to finish their work for the Art Show. The show will be on from Monday 3rd October to Friday 7th October. The opening will be on Monday evening, from 6pm to 8 30pm, where our Artist in Residence Simon Dranfield, will talk about his work with the level five and six students on the collaborative mural this term. During that week the art work will be displayed in the level three and four corridor. Mrs Geilings and myself look forward to seeing as many parents and students as possible on the night.
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!

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!
There have been some interesting changes in the art room this year! A ‘switch-a-roo’ has occurred between art and music. Mrs Melitsis is now full time music and the lovely Mrs V (as she is fondly known) is now joining me (Mrs Geilings) in the artroom.
Mrs V is thoroughly enjoying her time as the latest art teacher. Featured above are some of the new Foundation students who are joining with Mrs V in discovering the magic of the artroom!
Stay tuned for more posts on the fabulous art work that they have already created!
