5/6 Students have been exploring the use of paint to create movement in their artworks. Inspired by the artist Vasily Kandinsky students collected photographs of different flowers to create a collage. Using the colours of the flowers as inspiration the students then painted a background for their collage. The brushstrokes used to paint the background give the appearance of movement around the flowers.
3/4 students painted a ‘Still Life’ of our school’s native Australian flowers. The plants are located just near the Art room. We looked at Australia’s most celebrated artist Margaret Preston for inspiration. The artwork belongs to Aaditya in room 4 and Doveani from room 8.
Students in 3/4 & 5/6 have been learning about the abstract artist Vasily Kandinsky. we created different artworks inspired by the artist using the techniques of collage, painting and textiles. To introduce the artist to students we read the book The Noisy Paintbox by Barb Rosenstock. You can listen to the story here:
The first unit of work for Grade 3/4 this term was all about Drawing. Students explored ideas about self-portraits, investigated and used drawing materials and techniques to communicate their ideas themselves in a self-portrait. Here are some of the works created by our students.
How lovely to see our students with their parents visiting the art room on Meet the Teacher Night. It was great to see students talk about their artwork and show off their wonderful talents. Come and visit us often this year, Mrs Price and Mrs Armocida would love to see you!
What a fantastic performance by some of our very talented year 5 students last night. After six long months of working together the students performed at the Bowery Theatre, St Albans. Every student should feel very proud of their contribution and making it a very special evening for all our community to enjoy and share together! (A very proud Arts teacher here at SAEPS!)
