The children in the Middle Room have been exploring symmetry in Art. We were delighted with the results.
It was a beautiful afternoon so we decided to move outside for our art class. The children were asked to draw a still life using a pencil and concentrating on light and shade. A still life is a drawing or painting that focuses on still objects. The subject matter is inanimate and never moves, typically with a focus on household objects, flowers, or fruits. Still life drawing is a great way to practice creating shapes and building three-dimensional forms through shading techniques.
Tuesday the 15th of September is International Dot Day. The inspiration behind International Dot Day is the children’s book The Dot by Peter H. Reynolds which encourages students to celebrate creativity, courage, and collaboration. In the build up to Dot Day the children in Togher N.S. engage in many artistic activities – dedicated to getting the children to fearlessly make their mark on the world!
