Drawing on inspiration from Visual Art with Chelsea, Grade 1/2 have created film music to describe what can be found in the desert. Sticks, Stones, Snakes, Lizards, Tumbleweeds, Dead Trees and Vast Open Spaces are just some of the things the students chose to recreate using anything and everything they could find in the music room. Some of my favourite music has been created in the desert, which is a place of seemingly infinite inspiration and mystery.
All of these soundscapes were performed live by the students while watching the accompanying video on the projector in the music room. Old school meets new school.
I’m after some volunteers to help cut out the Grade 3/4’s Barong Masks. It’s quite thick cardboard and the students have been struggling to cut them out. If anyone is available from 9-10am on Monday morning and would like to help, I would be very grateful!
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.
This term the students will be discovering the world of plants through various artistic media. To find out more information about what each year level will be doing this term, click on the Visual Arts page.
