Clay Joinery

Grade four students have been working on their clay joinery and glazing skills. Inspired by the sculptures of Keith Haring, students created these mini sculptures with a practical purpose. You can see the work that Ms Brinton and Mr. Davidson’s classes created below. If you want a closer look at the work click on the Grade Four Artist Gallery to see the pictures individually.

A Frog In Monet’s Garden

After reading the picture book Phillipe in Monet’s Garden by Lisa Jobe Carmack and illustrated by Lisa Canney Chesaux, my grade four students created their own ceramic frogs. The ‘practiced, scoring, slipping and blending’ the clay to make all the pieces stay together. We also worked with underglaze, glaze and overglaze. The result is a pond full of friendly, funny frogs. They each of their very own unique personality.

Congratulations to the Artists

Congratulations to all of the artists from kindergarten, grade four and grade five. Your art work was very well received at the recent exhibition at the Redot Gallery.

After completing a unit on Aboriginal Art the students had their paintings exhibited along side the work of Paddy Japaljarri Stewart. It was a wonderful project that saw my fourth and fifth graders working together to create collaborative pieces that illustrated Aboriginal stories of the Dreamtime.
