The focus in art for all students at the start of Term 3 will be our 2019 concert. This year Narre Warren North Primary School students will be designing, making and selling badges promoting our concert. Students will also be helping to make props and sets.

All students will be designing a badge to enter into our competition to choose designs that will be made into badges and to choose an official concert logo. At least one winning entry from each year level will be selected and made into badges for students, teachers and parents to purchase. An overall winner will also be selected and their design will become the official logo for the 2019 concert. Badges will go on sale in a few weeks time. (We will be looking for lots of parent help to make the badges!) All students will have time in art classes to design their badge. Students may also take their design home to work on if they wish. Students may enter as many badges as they like in the competition. All entries need to be given to Ms Stevens by 3.30pm on Friday 26/7.

This term the Preps will be looking at rainbows and the art element of colour. They will be making collage rainbows and also painting rainbows by experimenting with acrylic paint colour mixing of primary colours to create secondary colours. Later in the term they will be doing a unit on printing and will finish the term doing some threading work.

The Grade 1s and 2s will be using modelling clay to create sculptures. They will then be studying basic colour theory and painting with acrylic paints. They will be looking at tints and tones. They will finish the term working with wool and fibres.

The grade 3s and 4s will be creating sculptures using modelling clay and ceramics. They will then be doing a unit of work on printing and will use printing foam to create mono prints. They will learn how to use the ‘chine-colle’ printing technique in their work.

The grade 5s and 6s will be doing a unit of work looking at the ways in which art can make a political, social or environmental statement. We will be creating a large, group art piece with an environmental message. Students will then be creating radial designs as part of a printing unit. They will finish the term with sculpture using modelling clay and ceramics.
