This year Knox Westfield contacted us to ask if we were interested in decorating two stars to be displayed at Knox Shopping Centre. Of course we said “Yes”.
Some very talented and committed Year 5 and 6 artists spent several recesss, lunchtimes and afternoons designing and painting these beautiful stars.
The brief was ‘Starry Starry Night’, so we decided to paint one of the stars in the style of Vincent Van Gogh’s Starry Night. Nicky drew and painted Santa’s sleigh and reindeers flying across the sky. Lara, Cara, Alexa and Michaela added a Christmas tree, elves and presents. Everyone helped to paint the sky and stars in the style of Van Gogh.
We decided to do the Nativity on the other star, in keeping with the brief we went with a night time version. Marilyn designed the nativity scene and Emily S, Yvonne, Parthi and Kayden drew and painted angels and the surrounding hills.
Well done everyone they look awesome.
We don’t know whereabouts in the centre they will be displayed, so if you’re shopping at Knox keep your eye out and see if you can find them.

In the Artroom the students across the school have been investigating colour theory.
Grade one and two students have been learning about rainbow order. They drew the sweetest caterpillars and coloured them using watercolour paint in rainbow order.
A few dedicated Grade 4 and 5 Art clobbers have been spending their lunch and recess times in the art room. They used dry felting and sewing beads to decorate the Wedge Tail Eagle for the Art Show.
Well done everyone 👍
Here’s a sneak peak
The students are excited to show you the wonderful artworks they have created.
Today some talented Grade 5 artists decorated letters for our welcome sign with beautiful Australian native flowers. They went all out and they look sensational.
