Art Club to be project based.

Art Club has begun with a bang! This week, the Art Room was open on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday lunchtimes for all students to come and begin the first project of the year. Approximately 50 students were coming to Art Club each day!

The project we are currently working on is a little gift for someone special. The students are making a fabric bowl – (papier mache technique with fabric!) After their bowl has been made, the students move on the making lavender scented bath bombs! This is proving to be a very popular project! A bonus is that the Art room smells heavenly!

Reminder: Students that attend art club must help to clean up 5 minutes before the siren goes to end lunch. Mrs Borlase has lessons straight after lunch and needs help to make sure the art room is ready for the next class.

New Recycling Centre

Mrs Zangari has set up a recycling centre in the wet area outside her art room. We will soon post a list of items that we are looking for to use in our art rooms. Teachers across the school will also have access to the recycling centre, so we will need a lot of support from our community to keep the recycling centre viable!

Please remember to clean items before bringing them to us. It makes our job a lot less time consuming if the items are ready to use when we get them!

Recycled item request

Later this year, we will be entering the Castaways Recycled Sculpture Competition in Rockingham. This year we are going to build a sculpture inspired by glass artist, Dale Chihuly. In order to achieve this, we need to collect as many of the disposable water and soft drink bottles as possible! Please wash the bottles, and if you can, remove the labels before sending the bottles to school. We have set up a collection point in the new shed situated behind learning block 4 (behind the art rooms). The roller door is opened every morning and students can access the collection point through this door. Thanks in advance for your support – more info on this project will come later in the year.

News – Digital Portfolio

I have set up a digital portfolio through the Artsonia website for every student from Pre-Primary to Year 6. This will display your student’s completed artwork. Very soon, your child will bring home a slip and a letter which explains how to register and log in to the site. Until the parent gives permission online, the student’s artwork will remain hidden from view. Be assured that only your child’s artwork will be on display – there will be no images of the students themselves, and their full name will not be on display for privacy reasons. Feel free to give your Artsonia log in details to family that you would like to have access to view your child’s masterpieces! If you have any questions, please come and see Mrs Borlase in Art Room 2.
