The Foundation students have begun a new unit of work this term in PA.
They will be working on the unit of Dance and Music. The music unit will be specifically focusing on singing.
They have been having lots of fun taking part in some dance activities using props such as Scarves.
I love these photos I snapped of some of the perps dancing with the scarves. They are moving so fast the photos are almost blurry.
I just love all the festivals they have in Brunswick and the surrounding suburbs. On the weekend I popped into the Zines festival in Florence Street Brunswick. I have been looking to buy some Zines lately for a project I want to get started at school. So when an add popped up for this festival I knew I had to stop by.
What is a Zine? A Zine is a small original self published booklet, magazine or book containing a range of pictures, text, artworks or a combination of all of these created by an artist that is usually reproduced using a photocopier for distribution.
Some Zines tell a story, some look like comics, but my favourite are the combination ones using mixed media.
Here are some photos of the ones I bought. And some images of what Is inside these Zines.
It is also fun to create Zines yourself. I’m working on one at the moment. Have a go yourself.
Here are the lucky students with their found Canvases from today’s trail.
It was another lucky day for the year 3/4 students finding all five canvases. As I was busy teaching today I was lucky enough to be assisted by some of the past Canvas Trail hunters who hid this weeks canvases for me.
Here is a close up of each canvas and a little bit of information about the artist?
Rasta is a graffiti artist who works with a range of mediums from paint pens and texts to spray cans to pencils. Thanks Rasta!
Another canvas by Rasta!
Millie is a six year old artist who wanted to join in the trail and create her own work of art! Thanks Millie.
This fantastic canvas was created by artist Amon Brock. Amon is the son of our super star 5/6 teacher Ant! Thanks so much Amon.
This canvas was created by 3/4 student Aaliyah. A fantastic canvas. Well done.
Another great Canvas Trail. Thanks to all who joined the hunt. Better luck next week to everyone who is searching. And may the odds be ever in your favour.
