Place Banners

A group of year 7’s have recently completed a textile unit of work based on map Keys/legends of their own home surroundings. They used Google maps to locate places of interest in their own suburb and then created their own versions of symbols to identify these. The following banners are full of icons of their own suburbs and the surroundings that they are a part of.

This term a group of year 8 students have had the opportunity to learn the method of silk painting to create their own scarf artwork. The theme of this unit of work was inspired by the song ‘the message’ by the famous Hip Hop legend Grandmaster Flash. Students learnt about the time in which this song was created, and how it influenced the development of funk to hip hop in music history. The students created silk paintings that were engulfed in jungle imagery and combined these with subtle imagery of the reality of┬áthe song. Here are a few images of students working on their artworks
