Foundation Primary Colours and Line Unit

The Foundation students have focused on the Art Elements of Colour and Line this term. They have learnt about mixing the primary colours to make the secondary colours and about using lines to make geometric shapes.

Students look at works by famous artist Jean Mondrian. They then drew a design in their visual diaries and coloured this in using crayons to ensure the pattern and design where correct. Students then painted black lines on to white paper to create geometric shapes such as squares and rectangles. These where then filled in using yellow, red and blue paint. They look striking and I think it would be hard to tell one of our students works from an original! screen-shot-2016-09-22-at-3-30-25-pm screen-shot-2016-09-22-at-3-30-42-pm screen-shot-2016-09-22-at-3-30-52-pm screen-shot-2016-09-22-at-3-31-03-pmimg_5095 img_5096 img_5097 img_5098 img_5099 img_5100 img_5101 img_5102

School Concert 2016

The whole school concert is only weeks away. Thursday the 13th of October is the big day so make sure you have booked your tickets.

Students have been busy practising and making, designing and preparing for the big day.

Here are some photos of students working on props in the art room. Look out for these on the night of the concert.

A big thank you to the Foundation students who decorated with such detail and thought the tiles for the magic carpet and the year 3/4 Students who cut them out and stuck them down to create the magic carpet. It looks lovely and the Foundation students where so proud! img_5229 img_5230 img_5234 img_5235

5/6 Student Costume Design Lesson

In the last week of Term 3 the year 5/6 students had a fun lesson based on costume design. We discussed the role costumes play in a performing arts show/ concert or entertainment piece. Students then had to pick a time from history and discuss and share what they knew about the fashion of the time.

After a quick chat and share with the class students got to work on designing and creating their costumes. The only catch was the material provided. Toilet paper. One roll per costume and no other tools. A fashion show was held at the end of each session to view the costumes and hear from the students about what they had created. These photos say it all……img_5197 img_5198 img_5199 img_5200 img_5201 img_5202 img_5203 img_5204 img_5205img_5210img_5211img_5213img_5215img_5216img_5218img_5219img_5221img_5223img_5224img_5225
