  BAG TAGS

  We have been learning to recognise bright and dark colours. We have used only bright colours

  so that we can find our bags more easily. We have also practiced many different types of lines

 such as zig-zag, wavy, hilly, broken, straight, wiggly and spiral lines to add into our art work. The

 more we practice doing lines, the more interesting our art work will be and the better our

 handwriting will get. 


 ABORIGINAL ART
 Together we read the story 'Why I Love Australia' by Aboriginal writer Bronwyn Bancroft. We  began experimenting with the Primary Colours of red, blue and yellow to mix the Secondary  Colours of orange, purple and green. We remained open to learning the Aboriginal style of dot 
 painting and took this style further by using magiclay to create dots we could feel when we shut
 our eyes.
 
  
  
  


 





  LIBRARY BAGS
  We have used our past knowledge of line patterns and shapes to create our own
  hand onto a Library bag. Our buddies in Grade 5/6 cut out our names using wall
  sticker so that we could temporarily stick them on to the bag and experiment with stencilling.
  We dotted, flicked and patterned etc around the letters to create white space. We 
  will add a little more art to the bag each year as a record of our increasing ability
  and creativity. It will be a lovely keepsafe to have by the end of Grade Six.
