2016 Concert- Come Fly With Me Around The World With Disney

Our Whole School concert took place a few weeks ago at the Clocktower Centre in Moonee Ponds.

The students did a fantastic job and the show was a hit. Here are some pics from the night! I wish I had more but it was so busy backstage with all the costumes, props, noise and nerves.

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

img_5372How fantastic do these look. Im actually surprised that you can tell who so many of the characters are in these portraits. Students thought about colour mixing and shading to create these lovely portraits of people who inspire them . They are on display around the school for you to check out.

Year 3/4 Term 2- Pattern

Pattern is one of the Principle of Art.

Principles are a way artist can organise the elements of art.

Here is a list of the art elements and principles:

Elements:

Line

Form

Shape

Colour

Space

Value

Texture

 

Principles:

Harmony

Balance

Proportion

Emphasis

Variety

Movement

Rhythm

This term we will be focusing on the principle of pattern. In class this week we have discussed the art elements that we can use to make patterns. Have a think about these.

We made up a definition of a pattern: A pattern is something that is repeated.

Have a look at these paintings and see if you can spot any patterns. Comment on which one you like the best and why.

New Year and a New Look

Welcome back! I hope everyone had a fantastic restful holiday.

Did anyone get arty? i did a bit of art play with my two year old. We used a Geli Pad and get all messy. It was heaps of fun. I’ll have to upload some pics. Would love to hear what art adventures you got up to!

As many can see the art blog looks super different. I have been playing with a new look and a new header. This has been the third one i have used this week, so lets see how long it lasts.

Whats happening in the art department in 2016?

Lots!

We will be putting on a concert this year in Term 4 that the whole school will be involved in. Over the year to prepare for this students will focus on the topics of Drama, singing and dance in Performing Arts. We will be working on prop design and production in Visual Arts as well as many other projects.

 

In Visual Arts students in year 3-6 will begin by looking at portraits and woks by famous artists.

Foundation students will focus on drama and what is performing arts.

Years 1/2 students will be learning about characters and conducting character studies in Performing Arts.

 

It is going to be another busy year ahead.

Please leave a comment on the blog! We love to hear from you and the students love feedback on their work.
