"Art’s been the best this year. I love art. We’re working on a project on healthy lifestyles and people being healthy. We’re doing campaigns to get people getting up and getting active" - Imogen 4W


"In the art room I enjoyed making things. We had to make a picture of someone famous. I printed a picture of Admiral Nelson and then I used a computer app and I printed out lots of little pictures of ships and I’m going to stick them on a piece of paper. Then I’m going to rule a grid on Admiral Nelson and look at A1 and A2 and everything to paint the Victories" - Caelen SH


"In the art room I enjoyed doing self-portraits and I enjoyed making the notables thing. You print out a picture of the notable then draw a grid all over it and then you use an app to print out little pictures of something to do with the notable person. Then you stick them on and you colour them in to make it look like the notable person. I enjoy using the aquarelle pencils" - Indie SA


Term 1

Lysterfield Primary School's students will be experimenting with many different materials and resources and exploring various artistic styles and techniques.

Each child has already created a self portrait by way of a mixed media collage. Cutting and pasting, tearing and sticking, painting and rubbing, the finished works were bold and impressive!
The Senior School classes will be working on portraits of a chosen notable in Term 2. The style and/or media chosen to depict their notable will be determined by what their personality is most well-known for. For example a portrait of Walt Disney may be finished in a primary coloured cartoon style whereas an image of Henry Ford may be composed of small car-part shaped pieces of aluminum foil.
Middle School students are beginning work on an advertising campaign. They have been briefed on the requirements and are heading into the planning stage. When complete, each child will have created four posters with tips on how to lead a healthy lifestyle. The students are excited to think that their work may escape the school's walls and find their way into the wider community!
Junior School classes exploring different styles, artists and materials. Messy charcoal, Picasso-esque shapes, warm colours, cool colours and scrunchy tissue paper to produce images based on popular fairytales.
In Foundation art lessons too, the students will be making messy messes and having fun while exploring lots of new things to produce some weird and wonderful zoo animals.
The art room this year is going to be a very interesting place to be!
