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

Foundation Dance Unit

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.

Year 5/6 Monocromatic Colours Paintings

The year 5/6 students have been working on a unit based on Monocromatic colours. They have had to choose a colour and mix shades and tones using black and white paint.

Their portraits are of influential people that the students think have or are making a difference in our world.

The learnt a technique of transferring an image of one size onto a larger piece of paper using a grid technique and a bit of knowledge from maths lessons.

They are almost done but to get us started here are some pics of the students working on these portraits. image image image image

5/6 Mixed Media

On Friday I was clearing the drying rack in the Artroom and having a closet look at the year 5/6 Mixed Media En Plein Air art works. They all look fantastic! I took a few quick pics of some that looked almost finished and thought I’d share the progress with you! image image image image image

You Found It!

It was a mad dash yesterday at lunch time as students from all years levels check the school yard for the FIRST art canvas from ‘The Canvas Trail’. It was a hid and seek frenzy.

The lucky winner was year 6 student Mali.

imageThe art work was created by an artist who calls herself ‘Angel Series’. Angel Series only ever draws, paints or sprays Angels. This piece was titled ‘Angels Body’.

Mali now has the privilege to be the first student to create her own mini masterpiece for the trail. I’m expecting her creation early next week. It will then be wrapped and mixed into the canvas collection for distribution.

Next Tuesday there will be more than one canvas hidden in the school yard so get ready to search for the prize!
