This is part two of Tell me a Story.
Grade 6 students have been busy creating figures to represent real people that were in a war to commemorate 100 years since the end of WWII. Students collected information about family members which was great to see them relate the topic to their own lives.
We incorporated, wire, alfoil, papeir mache, paints and Poppy pictures using pastels.
The background canvas was created on Open Night by our visitors with a few finishing touches to it.
Recently we had a beautiful exhibition of student work on display at the Lilydale Show.
It was a great opportunity to show off our work and the wide variety of work that we create here.
Well done to all the students who had work in the exhibition.
Maybe you can spot some of your work?
It has been quite some time since posting new artwork but that doesn’t mean we haven’t been super busy creating lots of new work. So far we have made art based on Van Gough, check out the Sunflowers by grade 1, looked at work by Picasso with grade 6 with some superb results and made work based on the Canadian artist Sandra Silberzweig with grade 4.
We have also studied David Hockney, Jeffrey Smart, Joan Miro, looked at colour and organic shapes at is only August. That’s heaps really!
Currently we are doing lots of weaving and even try to learn to freeform crochet.
Beautiful work from grade 4 based on Aurora Australis or The Southern Lights. Students have been studying space in the class room so this was a great opportunity to add some colour to Space!
We used paint scraping, pastel and they made gorgeous penguins to go on the ice.
Every year Grade 6 completes a Graduation Bear. We always have a theme, this year it was ‘what I want to be when I grow up’.
We had sporting bears, mounted police, scientists, singers, marine biologist, surfers just to name a few.
It is a big job for Grade 6 to sew all the outfits but the final results always look great
We are close to finishing our Hundertwasser panels and they are looking beautiful.
We still have to add little 3D faces.
