They have also created swim safe posters which reflect safe practises when near the beach, rivers, swimming pools or water around the home environment. The class have also been learning to explore line and shape in art. Their task was to observe and draw the senior classroom block or an aspect of it focusing only on the straight lines of the block. Some great relaxed sketches resulted.
Probably their flagship piece of artwork this term has been Room 1's observation and recreation of New Zealand artist Des Robertshaw's paintings. The class were asked to observe one specific image and take note of the lines, shape and blend of colour(s). The end result was simply amazing with beautiful pieces of work being completed and presented for all to see.
However, I am a tad bias of my class and their great work so why don't you be the judge!
