Year Five - Jellyfish

The Year Five students had fun with the edicol dye and pastels to create these abstract jellyfish paintings.

This activity was once again inspired the work I saw on Deep Space Sparkle

Wire Sculpture - Insects

The Year Three students have been very busy creating insects out of beads and wire.  For most of them this has been a new experience as it is the first time they have worked with wire.  As a a part of our learning we have had to discuss safety and the importance of wearing safety glasses to protect our eyes.  Here is some of their work:

Year One - Laurel Burch Inspired Cats (Part two)

The Year One's have had fun using edicol dye and fabric crayons to make a fabric version of a Laurel Burch cat.  I don't usually like to use templates but provided the outline of the cat to the students so that they would not be too small....even after using a template it is lovely to see the variety of different cats created.  We will be making these cats into our very own soft toys - today we started sewing...when they are completed I will post some photo's of the finished products.

Year Two - Dinosaur Silhouettes

The Year Two students created dinosaur pictures using their own stencil.  First they had to draw the dinosaur onto the page and then very carefully cut it out.  Some students gave their dinosaurs spikes which made the cutting very tricky but provided wonderful results.  When the stencils were finished the students used them to print with a roller onto backgrounds that they had painted or drawn.

Year Five - Under the Sea Prints

The Year Five students drew some pictures of different sea creatures.  They then chose their favourite image that they had drawn and transferred this to a foam printing block.  The students found drawing on the foam a new experience and for some it proved quite tricky but they all persevered and came up with some wonderful results.
