Art News

Last week, the Year 3 and 4 boys visited the 'Sculptures by the Sea' Exhibition at Cottesloe Beach. The experience helped to develop their knowledge and aesthetic awareness of the art form of sculpture. This excursion related to the transdisciplinary theme 'Who we are'. Giving the boys a sense of personal wellbeing by experiencing this creative community art event. The day was spent exploring the many sculptures and the boys were given the opportunity to meet a contemporary exhibiting sculptor, completing a practical artist workshop. The students were both engaged and challenged, whilst learning new art skills. It was delightful to watch the boys observe, explore and enjoy the amazing array of different local, national and global sculptures.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the many staff and parent helpers who assisted throughout the excursion, making this creative experience so very memorable.
