A few Grade 6 Masks from 2017

This year our Grade 6 students worked on making their decorative paper mache masks as individual and original as possible. Some were mounted on a backing boards, others had additions and cut outs, transforming their shape and character. Congratulations to the students who created the few masks pictured here. Particular congratulations go to Maddy who added tulle beneath the face with great 3D effect.

Owls – Grade 1 Weaving

Our Grade 1 students have the very talented Mrs Vicky Klepkas as their Art Teacher this year. She is very impressed with the skill level of her students who made these stunning woven owls.  She found the idea on Pinterest.  Congratulations to Vicky and her students on their fantastic artworks and their adherence to the maxim that “Quality work takes time”.

A trip down Memory Lane

 

Today we are showcasing some of the paper mache masks made by  our Grade Six students over the past two years. Given that this year’s Grade Sixes are among our most creative ever, we should soon be seeing some fabulous new original designs.

Op Art

Our Grade 6 students looked at the work of British Op Artist Bridget Riley and tried out some line work of their own. The object of the project was to create a sense of movement and 3D effects in their felt-pen artworks.

These are just a few of our Grade 6 students’ soft sculptures. They were made from new socks and were either hand or machine sewn by our students using instructions found on YouTube videos ( on our Grade 6 page). The owl ( made from a scarf) is by Vlad of 6KK. The elephant is by Lucy and the rabbit by Ebony. Congratulations to all our Grade Six students who are working hard to complete their characters and to finish our Year of the Monkey mosaic before Graduation.

Last term our Grade 6 students made wire sculptures in the style of such artists as Elizabeth Berrien. They used a variety of different wires from art supplier Zart along with their great range of wooden and plastic beads. The students also arranged wood off-cuts into a group sculpture which was photographed from different sides. Congratulations to all the students for their patience  and perseverance as working with wire can be much harder than it looks.

Our Grade 6 students have made paper mache masks again this year. Formed over plastic molds, purchased from Zart Art in Box Hill, they feature four layers of paper and are painted and decorated to suit the individual student’s own design. Our congratulations go to the students  whose masks are pictured above and to all the other students who put so much effort and imagination into their masks.
