One of the wonderful things about teaching Art is the opportunity to photograph some of the great student artwork.
This photo was taken many years ago with our film camera.
I’m sure Jacinta is at University by now. She was a Prep (Kindergarten) student.

Today I am posting some photos of two pieces of Art work done by one of our talented Grade 3 students last year at Childrens’ Art Classes run by our local Brimbank City Council.
Congratulations to Candy on the quality of her work and for her interest in Art outside school.
Well done also to her parents for their help in assisting their daughter to follow her dreams.

After school yesterday (during a violent thunderstorm) several dedicated Visual Arts teachers from our area met in our Art Room for a Product Display by Tania from Zart.
It was good to see the products and the work samples such as the pom-pom panda amongst the”bamboo” made from colourful straws of different sizes.
Our Grade 1 and 2 students are currently constructing Paper Mache pandas so they will be interested this photo. Of particular interest were the books on making artworks from recycled plastic bottles, lids and containers called “Fantastic Recycled Plastic” and the series of easy to read books on the Elements of Art.

We are in our second week of the school year in Victoria and I am posting some of our Grade 6 student drawings.
We are studying the Art of Asia and we have begun by drawing some of the masks of Indonesia.
Next step is to fold and cut some cover paper masks in the same style.
The first drawing reminds me of the character in “Where the Wild Things are” by Maurice Sendak.
