Monster puppets!

As part of the Artists as Illustrators unit last term, the Grade 1s and 2s discovered the work of Maurice Sendak, with a particular focus on the illustrations in Where the wild things are. The students spent five weeks, sketching and constructing their puppets and the results were wonderful.

Walert-Gurn (“possum-skin” cloak)

It’s been a long time coming, but here are some photos of the walert-gurns that the Grade 3/4 students created in Term Two as part of the Animals in Art unit. Not only did the students create drawings, paintings and a fabric piece illustrating Australia’s beautiful fauna, they also learnt about the anthropological history behind these amazing artefacts. Keep your eyes peeled because in the coming weeks they will be mounted on the wall in the Early Learning Centre!
