How one idea can inspire many different activities

There was a brilliant response to the Year 4 boys Oz Design Board Shorts Project. Thanks to all the families who took advantage of this great opportunity and I can't wait to see all the little board shorts running around on the beaches this summer.

In Art class, we followed up by creating colourful backgrounds using the simple potato print technique but using a range of tones to create interest. Then we overprinted with scratch foam prints of the boys' final designs for the board short project. We will add more fine details into the background with coloured pencils, to link the animal with their environment. It is fabulous to see how you can keep developing different aspects from one starting idea - like a drawing of an Australian animal.
