What have we been doing in Art?

05/11/2013

In EC, students have been discovering a variety of art materials and looked at shapes and colors. We used brushes, drawing materials, stamps, straws and even hands and feet!

Kindergartners have been discovering art materials and mixing colors. Great fun and very messy! Observation skills were one of the things we focused on when creating beautiful self-portraits.

In Grade one we planned and made masks with paper mache. It was great fun! Color mixing continues to amaze students!

Grade 2 students had to think of a story and used Aboriginal Signs and Symbols to illustrate it. Those dots took forever…

Karibuni Tanzania Art

07/11/2012

For their unit ‘Karibuni Tanzania’, Grade Four students worked with clay pots. Our first activity involved students learning how to look carefully and draw what they could see. Students used oil pastels to create colorful images of clay pots. Our second activity involved designing and making pots with clay. Students learned to coil, slab, join and decorate these beautiful pots. We will soon display these unique pieces of art near the staffroom and we hope you will come and admire them.
