Grade 3’s Art Message

Hi Grade 3 students and families! This is Anna. Welcome to Term 2 and to our new way of remote and flexible learning. It will be a bit different to seeing you in the classroom but remember, I am always here to help. Prep-3 students can keep in touch with Specialist teachers via their blogs, for the time being. Grade 4-6 students can keep in touch via Google Classroom. If you have any questions or need help with your Art work, please make a comment in this post so I can keep all the Grade 3 questions in one place which will make it easier for me to answer everything. I hope you enjoy your art learning this term and hope you have a wonderful week!

Below are some photos of our finished Term 1 artwork. Students first discussed the visual conventions of artist Piet Mondrian and made a similar artwork, then adapted the visual conventions to come up with their own abstract style. Students who did not finish will get a little finishing off time when we return to face to face teaching, then they can take them home!

Thankyou!

Hi everyone I hope you have enjoyed the beautiful autumn weather we have had over the school holidays!

I just posted a little test to see if we can post videos our blog-so thank you to the families who let me know they could view it! I have taken it down again as we need to tweak things a little more and we will be posting more content tomorrow!

 

 

…some photos from Term 4, 2019

Last year’s Grade 1’s and 2’s looked at the work of contemporary artist Kate Shaw. Students made their own panoramic landscapes using paint pouring effects. Students also practiced collaboration when they created panoramic landscape drawings in groups. Here are some photos of what they created:

Some of the finished individual artworks…

BSEM in Art

We have been using some of the Berry Street Education Model (BSEM) tools such as the Ready-to-Learn scale in Art. During initial instructions, students show with 1, 2, or 3 fingers how ready they are to start their learning in Art. During independent learning, students then have an opportunity to use a ready to learn strategy or talk through an issue with the teacher.

Farewell

I would just like to take this time to say goodbye and thank you for a wonderful 6 years at Bell Primary School. I have loved teaching art at Bell and will miss all my students dearly. They have always amazed me with their creativity and I look forward to seeing what they create in the future! I would also like to thank all the parents that have helped out in the art room over the years. I’m so very grateful because without your help I could not have run the projects I have. So thank you all and I look forward to popping back for visits along with my little one!

Much love,

Chelsea
