Grades 3-6
This term in Art in Grades 3-6 we will be exploring using many types of modelling materials including terracotta/stoneware/earthenware clay and plasticine to create 3D works to develop various hand building skills (pinching, rolling and joining). Each student will have multiple small pieces fired in our kiln in the Art room to paint and take home. We will be discussing the different purposes of sculptures (decorative and functional) and creating small sculptural pieces which enable student voice and choice. Students will develop their ideas by working through the art making process of designing and refining their work.

All Grade 3-6 students will create an imaginative piece inspired by the Children's Book Week theme 'Curious Creatures, Wild Minds' for display at AMPS. Students will also be introduced to textiles and weaving, along with further developing their drawing and painting skills. We will also be undertaking some mindfulness activities to re-establish a calm and positive school environment.
