Great quotes from the students in the art room this term

Grade 1 & 2s Reflecting on their Fish-ish Creatures this term:

“I felt proud of my work, I liked my background. I liked using different shapes for painting my background.” Louis, 1/2L

“When I was doing my work I felt nervous. It was hard to cut it out. When I finished my work I felt happy that it was looking good.” Harry, 1/2M

In Foundation we made Rainbow Fish-

“I chose less sparkles for my Rainbow Fish because he shared.” Rebecca, Foundation S

“”I chose to give two sparkles away.” Olivia, Fondation S

“I did three sparkles in places that I thought looked good. Now I think it was a good choice because the Rainbow Fish shared most of his scales.” Nicholas, Foundation S

Art – please collect

Hi Parents and Students,

I am requesting several things for the art room

  • Colourful bits and bobs we can glue onto collages
  • Boxes that are easy to cut
  • Art posters
  • frames you don’t want anymore
  • any beads, old bead necklaces

Thanks to the Foundation children that have already started bringing bits and bobs in!

Let me know if you are an art lover or know any artists that could talk to the students.

Please subscribe to the Specialist Blog!

Thanks Mel

Visual Art Grade 3 & 4 Term 1

This term we have been learning that an artist knows how to use different media to create art works. When we explored using oil pastels we looked at the lines and patterns found in sea shells and created our background for our imaginary fish-ish creature. We then used the shape of a shell to inspire the body design of our sea creature as well as the patterns on it. The students thoroughly enjoyed using gold and silver metallic pens to design the patterns and features of their fish-ish creature. We investigated names for fish and created a name for it and chose the frame colour we thought would suit it best.

Visual Art: Foundation and Grade 1 &2s

This term in the Art room the students across the school have been building their understanding about how a great artist can see lines and shapes in everything. They have also been investigating the use of different media. As most people head to the beach over summer we used a sea theme to start the year. The students have been very enthusiastic and are producing wonderfully creative work!

The Foundation students traced their foot and turned it into a fish after reading the Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister. They have used oil pastels and a resist wash of food dye. They have also made habitats for their fish using a tool called “Easy Grip Pattern Makers”. These will be on display in the Foundation area as soon as we put them all together!

The grade 1 and 2s have been making a fish-ish creature using unnamed shapes and various patterns and lines. They are using our new texture wands to create their habitats. (The work below does not have habitats attached yet!)

Japanese Role Plays

Well done to students in grades 3-6 who have been working hard on their Japanese role plays and scripts.

Grade 3/4 students are currently developing their role plays where they must include relevant Japanese eating habits. Students are encouraged to bring in props such as chopsticks to next week’s performances.

Some grade 5/6 groups have already performed their role plays where they have made use of Japanese currency. Remaining groups will perform next week.
