If the dinosaurs came back…

We read If the dinosaurs came back by Bernard Most and discussed how dinosaurs and humans could work together to help each other (in an ideal world, where dinosaurs didn’t eat us haha). The students LOVED this artwork! It had two layers of creativity: creating their own sentence from their imagination and then composing an artwork that matched their sentence. This artwork was all about writing and understanding how illustration conveys meaning.

Over and Under the Snow

The Preps learnt all about hibernation in this Over and Under the Snow inspired artwork. Over the course of 5 weeks, Preps learnt a variety of different painting and drawing techniques, which varied in terms of technical and more fluid approaches. These mixed-media works showcase the breadth of responses the students had and captures the essence of the original illustrations beautifully.
