This Term is going to be all about Tim Burton for the Year 3s and 4s. Students will be creating their very own spooky silhouette house and learning how to transfer a 2D image into a 3D landscape. After looking at Burton’s character sketches, students will develop their own character with Burton aesthetics, while learning about the way in which illustration conveys meaning without text.

Sound Art Inquiry Project

Year 5 and 6

This is an exciting term for the Year 5s and 6s and their specialist lessons. Music and Visual Art will be fused to create an in-depth Sound Art Inquiry Project that will span the entirety of Term Three. The students will create sound sculptures and through exploration will develop an understanding of the relationship between sound and sculpture. Through collaboration, individual work, digital-portfolios and culminating in a performance at the end of the term, the students will explore the way in which the line between music and art can be blurred to create a hybrid work of art.
