After our very successful art show night on Tuesday night here is the video that was put together by Signora Formichelli and some of our 5/6 students who not only performed in the video but put together the different components of the video. Enjoy!!!
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.
Today the amazing Grade one artists started work on an exciting whole school collaborative project for the Art Show. Feathers, Fur and Fins is a clue. They are such enthusiastic hard workers, I’m so proud of them 😁🦆🐶🐎🐔🐁
The amazing prep artists today worked super hard to create a rainbow creature for the art show. Shhhh…… it crawls and eats leaves. I was so proud of the way they created secondary colours from primary colours and they even created a marble feature. Well done.
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. 🌟
This years our Art Show theme is Feathers, Fins and Fur. The show will be taking place in term 3 (week 10) so the students are busy preparing their pieces of art to showcase during this event.
Here is a sneak peek of what the Grade 1’s have been working on. You’ll see lots of animals. Shhhhh!!!!!!
When it is raining or it is too hot at recess or lunchtime we stay inside and have an inclement play timetable. We open up the classrooms next door to each other (eg. 5 Yellow and 5 Blue play in the same space) and we do all sorts of things. Some of the activities we play include board games, drawing, knitting, playing hangman and beyblades. During inclement weather sessions you still need to follow inside rules such as only walking in the classroom, not using technology and packing up when you have finished. Here are a few pictures of some of the activities taking place during our wet play session today …….
Students in Grade Two were working super hard last week as we begin to start thinking about our 2019 Art Show -Feathers,Fur or Fins. Here’s a sneak peek of a Tiger you might see at the show, he’ll be hiding in the jungle they have created. So exciting ……..
What an amazing turnout! Thank you very much to all of the children who came to make an owl both on Wednesday and today at lunch time. Each of you are contributing to such an amazing cause and your generosity is much appreciated! A HUGE shout out to the parent helpers who have supported this event with your donations and time!! We couldn’t have done it without your help! Students, the kindness and patience that you showed to one another is commendable! To the staff that came to support, thanks a bunch!!
Here are a few action shots of our owl making fun!
The amazing artists at Holy Trinity have been working hard in the art room.
Grade One and Two artists looked at the wonderful contrasting effect of warm and cool colours as they created Initial and Bird artworks.
Grade Prep artists investigated mixing Primary colours to make Secondary colours while creating beautiful flowers.
Grade Four artists made these beautiful textured posters featuring their names.
Grade Five artists created these fun heart posters after being inspired by the artwork of American Street Artist Chris Uphues
Grade Six artistss made a collaborative artwork to display in the mini space, Reach for the Stars, it looks incredible. Thank you to Katelyn, Yul, Levi and Amy for the wonderful stars in the display.
2019 is off to a colourful start. 🌈
The new art leaders have done an amazing job painting the banner for the 2019 Knox Festival. The festival is on March 2nd and 3rd at the Wally Tew Reserve in Ferntree Gully. It is a terrific fun family outing with lots of food, rides and entertainment. The banner will be on display and is part of a competition to win the most popular banner, people’s choice award. So go along with your family and vote for our wonderful banner 😃🌈
At Holy Trinity we are very lucky to have the opportunity to participate in “Special Art Groups.” In special art groups a few students are chosen by Mrs Laming and the art leaders to complete a special art piece to represent our school. One special project we completed last year was when we painted skateboards with the TORCH values on them. These skateboards are displayed in the walkway into our Great Space. As you can see below the skateboards are very impressive.
Later on this year we will also have some special art clubs where students have the opportunity to sign up to participate in this group during lunchtimes. The art club is often led by our Year 6 Art leaders and they teach a range of skills including painting, knitting and weaving.
Here are some of our special art pieces.
Last weekend I attended the Catholic Education Visual Arts Exhibition 2018 on Saturday and the Knox Council Community Art Show on Sunday. Work from four of our students was displayed at each Art Show. It was wonderful to see the work from other students from schools throughout the State and the local community.
I am very pleased to share the news that Tina Siu (Grade 6 2017) won first place for her pastel drawing in the Grade Five and Six section at the Knox Art Show. Congratulations Tina 👍

This week our wonderful Grade One and Two students worked collaboratively to create amazing paper sculptures. I was so proud of the way they encouraged one another and shared their ideas. They really enjoyed making these and they look fantastic. The sculptures are displayed on the bag racks in the Great space if you would like to view these artworks.
