Almost show time ……

Almost show time ……

The excitement in the art room is building as the show looms nearer.

Two wonderful collaborative works are the beautiful interactive wings and the thumbprint turtle stool. Here’s a sneak peak at some of the work done so far towards these pieces.

Each student decorated a feather and these have been joined together to create two wings. Students will be able to stand between the wings and take a photo.

 

Today the art leaders coordinated each student in the school adding their thumbprint onto a piece of material we will use to create a cushion for the amazing Turtle stool Mr. Downey and Zander Downey built. Can’t wait to put it all together.

See you on Tuesday night  at the Art Show 😁

The Grade 3/4 Special Artists have been super busy in the art room creating some amazing animal skin paper . We are planning to use these in an awesome sign for the art show. There’ll be snakeskin, tiger, zebra, leopard and even eagle and peacock feathered paper.  It’s a challenging task and I’m so proud of them.

Mobile Phone Muster for the Gorillas

Mobile Phone Muster for the Gorillas

Our Melbourne Zoo ‘They’re Calling You’ program is under way. We are collecting phones for recycling with money going to the Gorillas in the wild. There is a cylinder in the foyer where phones can be placed. Seven phones so far, it doesn’t matter if the phones are broken or working

If you would like to delete your own data check out the directions on the link otherwise the data will be deleted after the phone is picked up. Melbourne zoo treat data security very seriously and ensure all data on phones is deleted.

Exciting Environmental News from the Art Room

Exciting Environmental News from the Art Room

During Term Three we will be participating in a wonderful program set up by the Melbourne Zoo to help the Gorillas in the wild. As we know these animals are critically endangered due to habitat loss created by us -humans.

The program collects old mobile phones and recycles them. By reusing  parts of the phones, resources found in the jungles are saved. The zoo also raises money from the phone recycling and that money is used to directly help the gorillas.

I am super excited about this program as it will give us an  opportunity to take real action. As the world faces some critical problems we need to realise that everyone of us can make a difference.

Further information will be sent out in Term three but in the meantime start searching out those old phones and feel free to tell friends and neighbours about our endeavour so they can donate their old phones too.

A sneak peek at the awesome artwork our Art Extension students have been creating. They had to work in pairs to create a four letter word to inspire us at HT. They had to coordinate warm and cool colours and use some interesting paint techniques. They worked really well together inspiring and encouraging each other. 🌟

So proud of the Grade Three and Four students who have been learning to sew over the last few weeks. They learnt how to do running stitch and back stitch and approached learning these new skills with enthusiasm. These were some of the quietest lessons in the art room as they used all their energy to concentrate on their sewing.

This week we began work on our mural in the breezeway near the Great Space. Earlier in the year the Grade Five and Six artists designed a graffiti character. Each student designed and drew their character onto brick wall type paper.

Three of theses designs have been chosen to feature on our ‘Love is all around us’ mural.

Congratulations to the three artists – Chloe McLean, Aleisha Elliot and Caitlin Paull. The wall is going to look amazing. The girls began work on their characters on Friday. Here’s a sneak peek.
