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!

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!)
Rehearsal day is here! All the hard work and hours of learning their lines are all put to test this week! Students got to rehearse in a real theatre today and they were ere all fantastic…..professional artists! Here are some photos of the day,
Rehearsals have began and students are practicing using the shadow puppets, writing scripts and learning lines! We’re buzzing with lots of excitement!
The students had a great time learning all about glazing and how to apply it to their fired clay creatures. The colours look amazing! Here are just a few:
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.
This year students from year five have a wonderful opportunity to work with visiting artist Jo Trevathan. This six month project will see students making shadow puppets, performing the real life story of the Vietnamese heroines The Trung Sister at the Bowery Theatre, St Albans as part of ‘The St Albans Festival of Families’.
Students have already started making the shadow puppets during the arts classes. Here a few students creating their masterpieces!
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.
