Grade 1 students have been looking at the colourful work of Australian artist Ken Done.
The students had a go at creating a harbour view with lots of colour. They also included a 3d element by adding extra pictures on foam backing to make them stand out from the background.
Some really fun results.
5J have just finished their Aussie Landscapes and the results are terrific.
Some of the students really got the technique for adding pastels in a relaxed way. They created depth of colour and highlights in their work.
It takes quite a while to get all the art projects finished as we work on a two week rotation.
This art work on the right has a touch of Van Gough to it with the curved lines throughout the work.
We have some more beautiful birds finished. The students have worked really hard on these and used a variety of techniques to create the artworks.
Grade 5 have spent the past few weeks creating mixed media landscapes based on photos of Australian scenes.
Students started with black ink applying it with sticks to get a freedom to their work. Next they painted with watercolour paints and finally added oil pastel and collage papers.
Prep O made beautiful birds today with zipper legs. Great work for fine motor development, improving cutting skills and using pva! These birds will be finding a home around the school. There will be more birds joining them soon.
Grade 3 students created gorgeous art based on the work of New Zealand print maker Annie Sandano. Annie works with wood to produce her detailed printing blocks.
We pressed our designs of Australian birds into foam and then printed them.
The students then created lovely geometric patterns with paper cutting to make the floral designs that surround the birds.
Here a few examples but all the work was terrific.
Check them out on display at school.

6M have added more colour to their maps with some exciting results. You really need to let the art work take you along for the journey.
We still need to add drawings and collage to make each map individual and show their ideas about Australia.
Students suggested sporting places, animals, plants and places they have been. Adding words and even the flag would work well.
