Quote

Preparations are in full swing for our upcoming STEAM (Science, technology, engineering, art, maths) night next week.

Mrs Armocida and I have been VERY busy preparing the wonderful artwork and getting it ready to display.

We hope you can all come along and participate in the fun activities including a whole school collaborative artwork they you will be able to be part of.

See you next Wednesday!

 

Kandinsky Collages

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.

 

 

Vasily Kandinsky

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:

Welcome to Visual Arts 2018 with Mrs Armocida and Mrs Price!

Hi, We are the Visual Arts Teachers and will be taking 3/4 & 5/6 students for Visual Arts during terms 1& 2, and Preps & 1/2’s in Terms 3&4.

This year in Visual Arts, your child will be creating lots of exciting things and developing their artistic skills in the areas of drawing, painting, collage and textiles.

To help your child keep their school uniform clean, please make sure your child has an Art Smock.

We look forward to an exciting year in Visual Arts. Please feel free to come and see us in the Art Room and have a look at the wonderful work we will be creating!
