Term 1 comes to an end
What a fabulous start to the year. All the students have worked so hard and we have had a lot of fun building our knowledge about Colour and Colour Value.
PLC looked at colours and emotions and the different colours we use when creating our self portraits. We finished the term putting our knowledge into practise by creating a colour wheel.
SLC looked at tint and shade and completed this exploration with the wonderful backgrounds for their fox artworks. I think you will agree that the results were amazing. SLC also rounded out the term with colour wheels with the added challenge of using water colour pencils and mixing their colours.
CLC also looked at tint and shade by creating monochromatic artworks. They could choose between a landscape or a city skyline. This activity was very popular.
YYLC used their colour knowledge to decorate their paper mache fish. This was a lot of fun.
All students also worked on their Harmony Day project. Each student completed a 'brick' for our Harmony wall. Above the wall will read; Together...we can build a better world. The students drew the change they would like to see in the world. This is our annual Harmony Week project which is displayed on the wall in the office. Keep an eye out for this early in Term 2.
Below are some samples of the student's work, and there are also some examples in the display cabinet in the office.
Have a safe and restful break!
Off to a great start!
The year has started wonderfully, with all the students showing enthusiasm and creativity in Visual Arts.
We began by looking at our MPPS CARE values and how can we implement them in the Visual Arts space. This is something being reinforced across the whole Specialist team. This year there is an extra focus on the two types of Responsibility: Personal Responsibility and Communal Responsibility.
Our main theme this term is Colour and Colour Value and wow, the students have delivered!
PLC: We looked at matching colour and emotions and the students created gorgeous collages to represent their emotions
SLC: We focused on the first of our CARE values, Collaboration and the students worked together to create Minibeast Collages
CLC: We incorporated Shape and Space into our Colour exploration and the students really challenged themselves with their Subtractive Paper Collages which demonstrate positive and negative space. There are some of these amazing works on display in the office
YYLC: Again Collaboration was the early theme with a study of the work of street artist Thank You X. The students then created their own version of his cube art which just looks amazing. We incorporated Form into our Colour study with the creation of Paper Mache Fish. The students are painting them this week and I am sure the results will be fantastic.
TERM 1...Welcome back
I hope all our families had a restful break. In am looking forward to another wonderful year guiding our wonderful students through their year in Visual Arts. This year we will be looking at the Art Elements which are the building blocks of art. The Elements are:
