Exploring paint effects

During term three we used various materials to create art works using collage and paint. we used textures templates to print with paint and stamps to see what kinds of effects we could make, We then created a frame to place our painting in. We used a variety of natural and recycled materials to make our frames. We think the textured frames looked beautiful against our paintings. The final artworks were bright colourful with lots of interesting patterns and textures.

Shape, texture and colour- Art elements

During term three we explored shape texture and colour as part of our CBL big idea of curiosity. We used paint and different tools to apply the paint so we could explore the kinds of textures and effects we could create. We also learnt about positive and negative shapes and learnt to cut out shapes with scissors. Using our new skills we created these amazing abstract mixed media collages. We combined our paintings and our shape cut outs to create them. It was interesting to see what kinds of paint effects we could create.

our first year of Art

During our first year of Art at Aitken Creek Primary School we have been creating some creative pictures using a variety of techniques and materials. We have learnt to work as a class community to make big class artworks and share materials in the art room. It has been so much fun and we think our work is beautiful. We would like to share some of our colourful art works with you and we hope you enjoy them. Keep watching the blog to see what else we make this year.

Who We Are: We Are Artists!

On the 14th of March, Aitken Creek Primary School held a ‘Collaborative Art Project’ to celebrate “Who We Are: We Are Artists!” We had a great attendance for the event and were excited to see our families and parents creating art with us and showing off their creative talents! It was such a nice opportunity for us to connect with each other and The Arts!

   

We continued our project over the next few weeks during our Art sessions, so that everyone in the community had an opportunity to contribute and to explore our artistic skills. What did we learn from this event? That we are all artists!

Our display is now up, and continuing to grow. We are impressed by the uniqueness of everyone’s piece and we can really learn a lot about our schools identities as we explore the individual artworks and connect them together.

Thank you to everyone that attended. We hope you have the opportunity to check out our display near the school library.

Health & Physical Education

Hi all,

Over the last few weeks in Health and Physical Education we have been focussing on so many new skills and games. The motor skills that we have learnt include hand-eye coordination, balance and throwing and catching. We have also learnt new games and activities including Ice Cream Sundae and What’s the Time Mr Wolf. I can’t wait to learn more new and exciting games this term.

Thanks,

Mr Muscari
