This term’s Year 2 Art program has been structured to tie in with the Inquiry Unit (Sustainability: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Respect, Rethink). Therefore, our first project, making Sun Catchers, involved reusing and recycling old materials. Check out the project and how we tackled it.
Don’t our sun catchers look effective? We are certainly proud of our artwork!
Well done to all of the Term One award winners !!!!
We hope you enjoy the outstanding artwork they have created.
Year 3 students recently completed an Australian Artist Study with a focus on Pro Heart’s ‘Dragonfly’ series……
The Year 2 students are off to a great start in Visual Arts. This term we are linking the Visual Arts program with their Inquiry unit which is based on the through line of Identity with a focus on “We Are Australian”.
Our first project was a response to the book ‘The Treasure Box’ by Margaret Wild and Freya Blackwood. It is an emotive book about a young boy who is forced to flee his war torn country. He manages to keep his town’s last surviving book safe in a treasure box where he returns many years later to recover it. The book symbolises nationality, hope and history.
Students have created a collage which reflects the techniques used by the illustrator as well as eliciting similar moods through their use of colour and light. They have considered what their most treasured possession is and recreated this in their collage. Check out some of them at work in the Art room and their outstanding work.
