Grade 1/2 A&B – Frogs and microscopic pond creatures

Grade 1/2 students have been imagining what microscopic pond creatures might look like under a microscope. They have carefully examined the lines and organic shapes in their artworks and then turned them into the little bugs and creatures that lie hidden in pond water. A selection of John Olsen’s artworks have been a wonderful inspiration for this task.

As mentioned in a previous post, my students really enjoyed watching the following video:

Grade 5/6 A&B – Pop Art Sculptures

Back in the art room after two weeks of school holidays! This week Grade 5/6 students began painting and detailing their Pop Art ice cream and donut sculptures.

First they recorded their ideas – creating a plan for how they would approach the painting and detailing component of this task. Idea development is an important step towards achieving desired art making results.

Next week students will complete their sculptures. They will all be on display at the annual Monmia P.S Art Show on Monday 22 May. Save the date!
