Reflection:

This term in Visual Arts we have created artworks with the focus of India. We have drawn the Taj Mahal using fine line markers with a food dye wash and designed an Indian Elephant showcasing Indian decorative patterns and colour. We have just started to create our 3D Indian dolls……..

Term 3: Visual Arts

This term students from grades 1/2 and 3/4 are participating In Visual Arts lessons for the rest of the year. Students will be creating lots of exciting things and developing their artistic skills in areas such as drawing, textiles, painting and collage.

To help your child keep their school uniform clean, please make sure your child has an Art Smock.  An Art Smock can be bought from shops such as Target or Kmart or you could use an old shirt from home.  Don’t forget to make sure your child’s name is on their Smock and bring it along to the next art lesson.

Funga Alafia Song

The students have enjoyed learning the song ‘Funga Alafia’ which is an African song from Ghana. It is a song of welcome and of opening the heart and sharing what you have. We often start our Performing Arts lesson with this song!

Song actions:

Funga: touch head with both hands (with my thoughts I greet you)

Alafia: outstretch arms

Ah-shay: touch mouth with both hands (with my words I greet you)

Ah-shay: outstretch arms

Funga: touch heart with both hands (with my heart I greet you)

Alafia: outstretch arms

Ah-shay: stroke back of arm between hand and elbow for 2 beats

Ah-shay: repeat for the other arm (I have nothing up my sleeve).
