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!

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!
The grade 5/6 students had an enjoyable time learning all about the great artist ‘Paul Cezanne’. It inspired them to create their own still life drawings of apples using the medium of dry pastels.
The grade 3/4 students have been working on abstract drawings using oil pastels. They looked at Pablo Picasso’s painting of the ‘Weeping Women’ for inspiration for their own drawings.
As the 2013 school year draws to a close, I would like to take this opportunity to wish all the students and school community a very Merry Christmas and wonderful New Year!
Don’t forget to pack some pencils and a sketch book on your next family holiday and draw away!!!!!!! I would love to see all the wonderful drawings and art works created next year at our first art lesson in 2014!!!!
