Monday Afternoon, for children in years 1, 2 and 3.
Term Three: 2013
We had a wonderful launch of our after school art classes starting in school term three with seven weeks of art classes, inspired by the current exhibition at the Art Gallery of N.S.W. The Sydney Moderns.
We give our students the opportunity to use many different mediums to work with. Children love collage, cutting, gluing and playing with colour combinations that made colours pop, developing over a couple of lesson to create a modernist inspired landscape, pop up book and after looking at Margret Preston, still life, flower prints and paintings, the children created a design with the fresh flowers and plants that I had cut from our studio garden, drawing their design on paper. Finally we painted together each wash of watercolour to create a Sydney Harbour painting. -Julia.
