This term the grade 1/2 students are focusing on lines and shapes. We have been thoroughly enjoying sketching our school buildings, the gardens and playground as we plan our masterpiece. We discovered the artist Hundertwasser and how he thought everybody needed to have nature a round them and even called raindrops kisses from heaven. He also hated straight lines and said there was a jungle of them all around us. He loved to use labyrinth spirals and bright colours. He was an architect and designed very interesting buildings. We are going to be creating a painting of our school in the style of Hundertwasser using oil pastel lines and a wash of colour over top.
