Art in Primary

In SK’s first art unit we discussed our roles and responsibilities. Through exploring textures and working with their classmates to share and create, they designed their own texture-filled train car. Each art class we come and go as a train so what perfect way to show our understanding. Here is a short video to show off their work. Final cars are on display outside of their classroom.

SK Texture Trains 2018

Year 1:

Year ones started their year in art discussing what makes a good friend. Through exploring facial features and create designs, each student designed their own caring creature. Each colour used to create the creature has meaning. Red, for many students, meant an energetic and happy friend while blue meant a loyal and trusting one. Our backgrounds are colours we like that show the style of a famous artist named Mark Rothko. These works are now on display in The Prep. Here is a short preview video of the kids’ hard work.

Year 2:

Year 2 has had so much fun jumping around and experimenting with different art materials. Inspired by Jean-Michel Basquiat and Robert Rauschenberg, each student designed a mixed-media piece of their own. In art, we discussed how creative expression helps us relax and be healthy. Here is a preview of our projects. The final works are on display in The Prep.
