Beautiful Owl paintings

This term, Preps have been looking at the work of Mandy Pattullo and her fabric owl collages. The students have spent 5 weeks learning how to draw owls, painting them and they’re currently working on their own owl collages made from scrap material (thank you to all the mums that helped cut up the scraps!). These drawings and paintings are work the students have done in their art journals as part of the developmental process. The skill level is truly amazing! Stay tuned for their owl collages in the next few weeks!

Preps make rosella artworks inspired by birds in our school!

Over 6 weeks, the Preps have been working hard at creating beautifully coloured and detailed rosellas. First we learnt how to draw them, students then learnt how to use water-colour paints and lastly, Preps had the opportunity to use oil pastels on their birds’ wings to add pattern and colour. As well as the birds, the Preps have been collaborating to make a large mural, which their birds will be placed on, when the work is displayed in early Term 2. This project was a great one for exposing students to a variety of different art media. There are some photos below of their wonderful artworks – full of character, charm and skill!

Artwork inspired by Gondi tribal art from India

Over the past 6 weeks, the Grade 1/2s have been looking at Gondi Tribal Art from India. Students started by drawing some developmental sketches of deer and birds. From these sketches, the students picked their favourite design and created a drawing using textas. The drawings were intricately detailed, vibrant and full of character. To see this display, visit the front entrance.

Having a hoot of a time!

At the beginning of this term the Preps created these delightful owl collages. During class time we looked at different pictures of owls and discussed their features, read owl stories and I ran a series of guided drawing workshops to help the students feel confident to create their owl works. These wonderful works are housed in their art journals.
