2017

The whole school will be having Art lessons in Term 1 and 4 with Mrs Davies.

 

All classes at Jindivick P.S. have art sessions.                                                               4/5/6 on Monday, F/1 on Tuesday, and 2/3 on Wednesday.

 

Our teacher, Joan Price, (who also teaches Grade F) is a wonderful art teacher. She teaches us all about the different medias, techniques and also about the unique styles of famous artists. We do a lot of projects that link to what Mrs Price does in her spare time, like her trips to the beach, China, Peru and her knitting.

Term 4

During Term 4 Grade 4/5/6 will be working with clay, using our local artists Sue Acheson and Jessie McLennan as inspiration.

On 29 October we joined in a video conference with many other schools. The program was run by the Ballarat Art Gallery where the Archibald Prize paintings are on display. We were shown some of the entries and joined discussions about them. We then got to sketch a live model with instructions on how to draw facial features.

Here are some of our efforts.
