It’s the first day of Winter here in Australia. It’s not snowing ( it rarely does in suburban Melbourne) but the weather is damp and miserable, a great time for writing and reading Blog posts. While my fellow Art teacher is holidaying in Europe I have had the pleasure of taking her Grade Two classes on a Friday. Yesterday the students added some collage to last week’s stencil printed snowmen. They had a wonderful time imagining such characters as Snow families, Ninja snowmen and even famous snow people who had the red carpet rolled out for them. A piece of red ribbon inspired that idea. Next week we will complete the pictures and begin to plan our 3D snow people.
