Visual Arts


 

Greetings from our Art Room!

As with all the best laid plans, our Term 2 curriculum has been altered somewhat to cater for home schooling. So as construction materials, clay, textiles materials and paints may not be easily accessible to all households, these activities will be held over until Term 3. We have designed our Term 2 program to be ‘family friendly’ so many activities over the different levels will be linked, with different expectations per level. Art may then be covered as a group activity at home, one messy session together!

Our activities may include the use of pencils, scissors, tape, textas, markers also paper, cardboard, foil or things found in the garden. Each child has been given their sketch books, the Year 1-6 a new book to work from. Each WEDNESDAY morning the activities will be published on Seesaw. The students will have the week to complete the tasks and submit photos of their work in their activity page on Seesaw. Rod and I will respond to those forwarded to us and record the efforts of the students.

We aim for the students to find this term’’s home activities fun, stimulating, and a portal for them to display and expand on their creativity.

Years 1-6 also have art dice games to stimulate drawing ideas. They will also create art memory games. These can be played solo or as group or family activities.

Remember to allow the children to be creative using what materials they can. There are also excellent art shows on The ABC Education which will support the learning.

Wishing you all the best through these different times.
