This fortnight we are busy preparing for our open night extravaganza in week 9!
Each year level will be showcasing a cultural aspect from India that they have learnt this term and will display their understandings in a visual arts display!
Here are our year 5 students making Diwali lights and candles as we are studying the festival of Lights as a significant celebration in India
Each Diwali candle will be as unique as their creators!
The year one and six classes have been creating Henna designs on masks and hand outlines and learning about the origins of Henna have been fascinating!
Our imaginative year 3 classes are studying the intricacy of Rangoli art and making their own designs for our open night. We cant wait to display them!
Here our Year 4 students are making Rangoli Prayer mats. They are confidently using a variety of textured paper and mediums to create different designs.
This is just a sample of the information texts and stimulus pictures used in our lessons this fortnight to help inspire the children in their art. ( As well as you tube clips, music and books!)
