Primary's Term 1 Art Update
If you visit King's Primary Art room on any given day, you will find a contradictory mix of serene ambience amid the chaos of creative mess. From raffia twine, to wet plaster, colourful fleece, and paint in all hues of the rainbow, Mrs Wendijk has created a classroom space that inpsires imagination and quiet reflection as students focus on their creative masterpieces. Our Primary students' Term 1 artwork (described below) will be on display at our Easter Fest event, and our young artists are excited to showcase their finished creations for family and friends.
Year 3 students dreamed up and drafted their designs in pencil of their fish sculptures and have been working hard in art class to bring these 3D plaster gauze fish to life.
Year 4 students have become illustrators this term and made the missing page for “Fox” by Margaret Wild and illustrated by Ron Brooks. Students have made a textured background using tissue paper and PVA glue and now using acrylic, creating blends to represent the sky and ground. They have been studying perspective and colour. They also have been looking at sketching and the process using lines and shapes. They studied proportion and drew “dog” from the book “Fox.”
Year 5 students have been inspired by the Indigenous people known as the Tjanpi weavers in their art classes. They have been creating raffia and yarn birds and are now considering the enhancement colour can put on specific areas of their birds.
Year 6 have become traditional cloth makers and are making their own felt from fleece. They have been making organic felt bowls using the fleece to craft the coloured blends and create the form of a bowl shape. They are in the process of highlighting the impact of ghost nets on our marine life.
