Today was the first day of Arts Week…hooray!
First we talked about the words in the quote ‘Together we achieve the roots to grow and the wings to fly!’ which is our quote of the week. Then we looked at Cassie Leatham’s art work called ‘Over time we come together’, discussing the patterns and shapes we could see as well as how the art showed ‘together-ness’. We drew around our own hands to begin our own art work in he style of Cassie’s. On some we collaged different tones of paper to show that even though we are all different, we can come together as a family and work as a team.
In the afternoon we looked at aboriginal symbols as this is the art Cassie uses, and we even created our own symbols. Finally we added some symbols to our hands from the morning to create patterns.
