Years K - 6

The creative act is fundamental in providing an opportunity for children to connect with their innate creativity whilst having fun! Join artist and arts educator Christine Simpson to explore a range of techniques/materials focusing on building foundational skills whilst children find and develop their creative expression. Watercolour, pencil, charcoal, clay and pastels will be among the materials used to build unique compositions. We will weave into our work the seasons, nature, dreams and story as we draw inspiration from life & imagination.

To begin our program for Term 2 we will celebrate International Family Day in May :)

Week 1: Self Portrait
Drawing: Charcoals and Chalk Pastels

Drawing, Cutting and Collage

Inspired by Matisse’s Cut Outs we will take the forms of the Leafy Seadragon to create interesting shapes which will be drawn, cut out and reassembled to create an abstract artwork.

Air Drying Clay

As this time of year is the season of the Burrugin (the Echidna) when days are becoming cold and frosty, children will make clay echidnas using air drying clay and clay modelling techniques.
