Recently our Grade One students painted Blinky Bill (a cute and cheeky Koala created by Australian Author -Illustrator Dorothy Wall in 1933) with such great character that I have decided to post some more photos to showcase the work. The students get such an enormous boost when they see that their work has been used. I enjoy watching the pride on their faces and the support that their classmates give them with a round of applause. I hope that their Class teachers will support our Visual Arts Blog by encouraging their students to make Blog comments. I am keen that reading and commenting on Blog posts should become a recognised and frequently used activity in Literacy lessons.
