Visual Arts Update

This term in Visual Arts, students in years 1 and 2 have explored the area of threads and textiles.

Students designed and cut out clothing from a variety of fabrics for their paper person chains. They then worked on a hessian wall hanging based on a space, garden or ocean scene. Students cut the things needed for their scene out of felt and used buttons and sequins to enhance and decorate.

Foundation students have embraced the season by using two different techniques to create an autumn tree. The first technique used scrunched tissue paper to form the leaves of the tree. The second technique had the students dabbing on paint with the tips of cotton buds.

Foundation students have also experimented with colour by mixing primary colours to make secondary colours. Using only red, blue and yellow, the students produced some very colourful butterflies
