What do you do when it’s the end of term and you can’t start any new projects? Picasso inspired dogs and cats are just the thing! Yesterday the Grade 1 and 2 students created these wonderful wacky paintings of dogs and cats.
The students loved making these works and I loved teaching them how to make them! We started with creating an abstract painting. The following week, I taught the students how to fold their abstract painting into a kimono. Students learnt about portraiture, colour and abstraction during these lessons. The end results are charming and skilful pieces of work. Well done Grade 1 and 2!
A bit of a fashion show to get us inspired!
Over three weeks the Preps created these beautiful koi pond relief artworks. During the making of this work, students learnt how to trace templates (as adults and accomplished students, we take for granted that Preps have never experienced tracing and other skills) and build upon their fine-motor skills such as cutting and painting. It was lovely to hear students getting excited and saying “Chelsea, I just realised the koi are all warm colours!!!” (so those lessons on warm and cool colours did sink in!).
Hi everyone Chel and I are working on a big Bell Biennale post. But until then we hope that you enjoy the comment tree time lapse.
