Making Artist Books

Students throughout the school are busy making a variety of Artist Books. We have concertina folded books, paint, stencil, fold and collage books, pop up books and tunnel books.

Grade 6 are taking it one step further and designing their own ‘Lost Thing’ based on the work of Australian author/ illustrator Shaun Tan.

Here are a few samples that are currently under construction.IMG_0887 IMG_0886

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.
