This term the grade 3/4 students explored the artworks of the Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama (sometimes referred as the polka dot artist). They made pinch pots similar to the artist’s pumpkin sculptures.
The grade 5/6 students used the characters from the much loved picture story book ‘ Where the wild things are’ by Maurice Sendak to create and design their own character. They used the clay to make the characters. Here are some without the glaze. Next term we’ll be glazing, bringing them alive with colour.
Watch this space!
Look at what the all the grade 3 to 6 students have been working on! We have been busy working with clay and learning the technique of making pinch pots and using the correct joining technique. The photos show all clay drying which is called Greenware and next week I will begin to fire them. I can’t wait until we can paint them!
During semester 2 the students from Prep and 1/2 created art works inspired by the famous artist Vincent Van Gogh.
The Prep/One students worked together and created a beautiful textile collage of the famous painting ‘The Sunflowers’.
The One/Two students created drawings of the ‘Starry Night’ onto their clay plaques. Well Done prep/one/two students!
