Erika Doria was the chosen designer for the 2010 Grade 6 Mosaic. Erika’s tiger came up well in the brightly coloured ceramic tiles and the finished work shone billiantly under the spotlights on Graduation night. It is pictured here with Erika (left) and Acting Principal Chris Sevior.
BJ Bentley, our 2009 designer, looks on as our Principal, Mr Peter Reading accepts the 2009 Year of the Ox mosaic.
This is the 5th in our series representing the years of the Chinese Calendar.
Our New Mosaic was presented to our Principal at Grade 6 Graduation on December 18th,2008.
Our Mosaics have finally been displayed in our school courtyard. They are done each year as a Graduation Gift to the school. A student drawing is used as the basis of the design.The animals depict those used in the Chinese Calendar. 2008 is the Year of the Rat so we will work on that Mosaic in Term 4.
I have been fortunate to attend a 2 day workshop run by Mosaic Artist Deborah Halpern.
It was held at Ballarat Art Gallery in 2005.Below are 3 photos of Deborah’s work during the grouting process.
