The School Year is over in Australia ( the new School Year begins in late January 2013) and families are preparing for Christmas, the New Year and in many cases an annual holiday to the beach or to the country. This wreath was brought into the Art Room by a creative Grade 5 student who constructed it using a foam circle as the base. She covered it in diagonally wrapped ribbon before adding the decorations. We wish our Blog followers from far and wide a very happy holiday season and all the very best for 2013.
This year I have enjoyed all my Art Classes but today I want to say an enormous “Thank You” to the students of my Thursday classes, the very talented 4CD, 4SK, 4AA and 3/4 HL. They have been so eager to learn and have shared their wonderful interest in Drawing, Art in general and ICT with me. Each week they bring in incredible drawings which they have done in their spare time, much of it inspired by YouTube tutorials and shared ideas. Even while I was away on holidays in the USA they worked very hard to produce their own collage versions of Van Gogh’s “Sunflowers”. I owe an enormous debt of gratitude to my fellow Art Teacher Glenys Vella who replaced me for several weeks and who always brings out the best in our students. Simply, Thank You all.
