Earlier this term, some of the CLC and YYLC students completed a Drawing Challenge. We first looked at the artwork of Georgia O'Keefe for inspiration.
The challenge was to complete 3 drawings of a flower. The time allowed was different for each drawing:
Drawing 1 - 20 seconds
Drawing 2 - 2 minutes
Drawing 3 - 20 minutes.
The task was designed to help students with time management skills. We talked about making the most of the time provided and having a plan in our heads before we start. I think you will agree they did a wonderful job.
Even though we are in lockdown, we can still travel the world via the internet. There are lots of ways we can experience art from the comfort and safety of our homes. Below are some great links for you to explore:

After a short delay due to Lockdown 5, the YYLC Exhibition Day went ahead on 28 July. The students did such a wonderful job guiding the younger children through the Exhibition. Every Learning Community had the opportunity to experience the wonder of our Underwater World.
Congratulations to all the YYLC staff and students. This was the culmination of all the hard work of Semester 1 and everyone should be very proud of what we achieved together.
I have included some photos above and two of the wonderful time lapse videos that Briony created (thank you Briony) on the day.
A special thanks again to the wonderful artist, Mark Egan, who worked with us through Semester 1 to create our breathtaking exhibition.
Keep checking in to www.underthesea.com as Mark will keep adding material from the project.
