Claymation


This afternoon we had a screening of the Stage 3 Claymation films that our students have been working on in Art Cave with Jane and Alex. Students worked in groups to create a short animation of 15 seconds in length, using different backdrops, clay, playdoh, and other props. Students used the stop-motion animation technique of taking 5 frames per second, then playing the images in order to create the sense of movement on the screen. Some groups even went beyond that and added sound effects and music to their short animations. Below is a compilation of all our claymation films.

Art Cave

Thank you to our wonderful parent volunteers Jane and Alex who ran our first Art Cave session for the year last Friday. Students began creating some beautiful artworks based on our Science topic microorganisms using ink and straw blowing. They’re going to look fantastic when they’re done!

Year 6 Tie-Dying

Just a reminder for all our Year 6 students: Jane is organising a wonderful end of year opportunity for Year 6 – tie-dying in the Art Cave!

Students who wish to participate are asked to bring in a white cotton t-shirt (no polycotton). Students have the option to bring in an item besides a t-shirt eg. socks but it must also be cotton or the tie-dye will not work (no jumpers or caps).

Please ensure you bring in your cotton item clearly labelled with your name by Monday 6th November (next week).

Art Masterpieces

This term in Art Cave with Jane and Alex, Stage 3 students have created collages of famous artworks. The OC chose Vincent Van Gogh’s Starry Night and Roy Lichtenstein inspired pop art words. Each student used a 10x10cm piece of card to recreate a section of the artwork, creating our own unique interpretation in which all students contributed. We’re still putting on the finishing touches and our completed works will be on display at our Art Gallery event during Education Week (week 3) next term. As always, a tremendous thanks to Jane and Alex for giving so much time and effort to our students.

Reconciliation Artworks

This term as part of our History unit on Aboriginal Culture, students designed and created posters to represent reconciliation. Well done!

Art Cave Totems

Today we had our first session of Art Cave (thanks for all the toilet roll donations) with our wonderfully artistic volunteers Jane and Alex. We began working on creating ceramic totems that will eventually be constructed to make a class display within the school grounds. Well done, everyone!

Cardboard Metropolis

This term in Art Cave, Stage 3 have been working on their own cardboard city creations. We started by looking at the works of Ana Serrano – http://www.anaserrano.com/index.php?/work/buildings-2/ – and then choosing our own shops and structures within cities that we could construct using recyclable materials. Thank you to our wonderful resident artist, Jane, and to Alex, for their efforts and creativity. It is wonderful to work on such large scale projects such as Cardboard City and it would not be possible without their efforts. Have a look at the slideshow of images from our creations below.​

Art Cave

Have a look at the terrific effort our students have made in Art Cave this term. Students have been doing ceramics and created some Olympic busts. Well done! As always, thanks to the amazing Jane for her time, creativity and initiative in running the Art Cave.

Art Cave

Last term in Art Cave all Stage 3 students participated in Lino Printing. Students began by creating and drawing a unique design, tracing this onto their lino, carving their design and finally printing. Below are some photos of our completed prints. A huge thank you to Jane, who not only volunteers her time, but organises all of these fantastic Visual Arts opportunities for our students. This term students have begun working on self-portraits. Can’t wait to see how they turn out!

Art Cave

This term during our Art Cave sessions with Jane, we have been working on Lino printing. Students created their own design and learnt all about the different techniques and processes for lino carving and printing. Well done and thank you to Jane for always providing us with great artistic experiences! I am looking forward to seeing our finished work.
