During Term 3, all students at MPPS are required to transition to remote learning. Students will primarily use Google Classroom to engage in learning. Students have daily schedules to complete assigned learning tasks, submit assignments and receive feedback from their teachers. This information is based on the curriculum content for Term 3 which students will be learning on-site or remotely.
In Visual Arts, students will be required to upload a photo of their work to Google Classroom each week. This will act as ongoing assessment for the term.
The focus for Remote Learning will be an exploration of some of the Elements of Art through drawing. The elements we will be focusing on will be: Texture, Form and Space.
If you want to explore some Galleries while at home, here are some great links:
British Museum, London. Egyptian Sculpture Gallery
National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne.
Choose which area of the Gallery you would like to explore.
The Louvre, Paris. Virtual Tours.
The Guggenheim Museum, New York.
Materials for kids and families.
Though we only had a few weeks at the end of Term together in the classroom, the students produced some amazing work to finish of Term 2.
PLC/SLC: Continued to explore colour mixing through different painting techniques. We swapped our paintbrushes for cotton balls, cotton buds and string.
CLC: Students applied their colour theory and paper manipulation techniques to create amazing 3D artworks.
YYLC: Using Henri' Matisse's paper cutouts as inspiration the students created an indoor garden in the Learning Community. It was exciting to see how well the students collaborated to create this amazing piece of art.
Term 2 wasn't what we had planned, with all of us making the move to remote learning.
I am so proud of the resilience and flexibility shown by our students who took it all in their stride. Thank you also to our families who guided and supported the students through the remote learning period.
The work produced for Visual Arts during this term was amazing. We all made do with the resources we had at home and the results were great! You can see some examples below.
I look forward to returning to our new version of normal in Term 3.
This term PLC did a fantastic job with their line landscapes. We drew our outlines together and then decorated our landscapes with all the different types of lines we have experimented with. The students then chose which colour card they would like to mount their artwork on to best display their work.
The students explored lines further with their Rainbow Fish. The template for their fish was created by tracing their partner's foot.
We finished most lessons this term with 'Gallery Time'. This involves the students sharing and discussing their work. We focused on commenting positively about what we liked in each others work.
