Watercolour wonders

Grade 5 have created some stunning watercolour artworks. We looked at the UN rights for children then created a watercolour painting to fit the idea. Learning to use watercolours properly was a bit of a challenge but we were lucky to have Miss B with us to help.

Students worked layering the watercolours to give more depth to their painting. Next we added some fine liner and a little collage.

The results were fabulous.

Tell Me A Story part 2

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.

Tell Me a Story

Over recent weeks students have been busy creating art works based on literature. We visited Fairy Tales, found out Where the Wild Things Are and went on a journey with Snugglepot and Cuddlepie.

The art work has been fantastic. Lots of colour and we have used a huge variety of techniques and media to create these masterpieces.

Miss B who has been visiting us from America has had a great time working with the students.
