Year 8 Artists are as BUSY as BEES

Posted: Friday August 23, 2019

In art, the Year 8 classes have been busy using the observational drawing skills of a scientist crossed with the tonal skills of an artist. Next, they explored and played with making cartoons of bees depicting some of the jobs and types of bees in a hive.

Year 8 Textiles

Posted: Friday August 23, 2019

Some Year 8 classes have produced designer pin cushions. The students have learnt a variety of hand sewing stitches and have had to problem solve when developing their unique templates. I was impressed with the students creativity, perseverance and development of skills. Some look good enough to eat!!

Softie Creating in Textiles

Posted: Thursday August 22, 2019

Our Year 7 students have started their 'Softie Creations' this term. There has been a lot of new learning involved from designing templates to threading needles and hand sewing a variety of designer stitches. Learning new things can be challenging but we have persevered and produced original softies jam packed full of personality and progress! Well done Year 7 Textiles :)
