Art Room Fun in Term 1

This term in the Art Room, students from ECC to Year 6 have been getting their hands messy, creating many beautiful artworks!

ECC looked at the work of Morris Louis and used watercolour to create their own colourful response.

Foundation students read the story ‘Mouse Paint’ about three cheeky mice who discover three pots of paint in the primary colours, and colour chaos ensues.

Year 1 explored the artworks of Henri Rousseau, regarded as a self-taught genius, to create collage jungles.

Year 2 immersed themselves in colour, inspired by the cat-obsessed artist Laurel Burch. They used chalk and oil pastel to create their colourful felines.

Year 3 and 4 students also explored the cat-tastic world of Laurel Burch’s artworks to create a painted and embroidered piece.

Year 5 played with watercolour techniques, using the work of quilting artist (and marine biologist) Allie McCathren, to create their own sea glass collages.

Year 6 researched forest floors and whimsical picture storybooks to inspire their watercolour paintings.
