Just Hanging Around


Mobiles were one of the series of artworks beginning with M which our Grade 5 and Grade 6 students could choose to make during the last weeks of the 2011 school year. Our school year follows the calendar year here in Melbourne, Australia, so we are now enjoying six weeks of Summer holidays. Sarah, of 5AR, chose to sew and stuff these five felt animals and then she hung them on an old wire coathanger  covered with chenille stems.  American sculptor Alexander Calder is said to be the inventor of the mobile. If you are just “hanging around” in the  School Holidays why not try to make your own Mobile?
