Serious Fun

Playing by " making a mark" in Art, has been a wonderful way for the Year 1 boys to explore different qualities of media and to express their ideas. To make a mark, by dictionary definition, is to "do something that is very important or meaningful". Creativity involves the whole curriculum and students need to be provided with opportunities to explore and share their thoughts and ideas. Go and view the mini exhibition of artwork by Year 1 students, based on their explorations of dots, colours and lines. The Australian artist John Olsen inspired some of the artworks, by " taking a line on a journey." Boys have learnt to mix colours and to classify them into categories like warm and cool colours. Looking at the focus in the boys' expressions in the photographs shows just how serious play can be!
