Prep HP – Hessian and Felt Pictures

Blue hessian, or burlap as I believe it is called in America, made a great background for the Prep students’ felt “Pandas in the Forest”. Rebecca’s panda is having a rest.
We got around the difficulty some young students have cutting circles by using squares and rectangles and cuttung their corners off.
Glittery pipecleaners were threaded though the hessian to create “hangers” for the work.


Grade 1&2 Thai Elephants

Our Grade 1 and 2 students have been studying Asia. This Term they have looked at Asian elephants and how they are decorated and used in Thailand to give rides.
In this mixed media work the elephants were painted, the leaves printed and the saddle and head cloth collaged. Many more Thai elephants are on display in our Art Room and in our school foyer. This work is by students in  Grade 1 SV.



The formation of the NCCC

On Monday this week most of our Grade 6 students travelled by bus to our national capital, Canberra for a school Camp. They are staying in motel-style accomodation and during the week some of the attractions they will visit include the Australian Institute of Sport, Parliament House, the Australian War Memorial and the National Galleryof Australia.
In the meantime the Non Campers  attend school and undertake school based activities with our many Specialist teachers. I was fortunate to  take them for sessions in which we formed the NCCC , sorted the junk items from Reverse Art Truck and enjoyed the freedom of creating a “Creature” from junk.
Dean’s character carries a small friend in his hood. Sheniz made a great tricycle for her character to ride in style. There are more characters on our new NCCC page.
