Home to City

the following work was created by a year 8 Art class. They explored the work by Annalise Rees and created their own hand drawn interpretations. They used Google Earth to find images of their own street and then mapped their way to the CBD. They learnt about concepts of foreground, midground and background to create the effect that their buildings were receding into the distance. This was a great task that not only integrated specific art skills but also made it possible for the students to explore the places in Adelaide with great detail.

The houses on my street

A group of year 8’s at the start of the year investigated the work by Annalise Rees and created their own abstracted house interpretation. The students used Google Earth to locate their own home and sketch the houses on their street. They learnt about negative space drawings and created a layered artwork.

Mosaic Artwork

Recently, a group of 18 students created a planned mosaic artwork as part of their Community Living Week. They learnt about tile cutting and grouting and created their own table mosaics as well. The artwork was designed to celebrate the schools move to a house-based system: Kavanagh, Boylan, Moore and Murphy, all past sisters that played a strong role in the foundation of the school. The mosaic consists of 5 parts; 4 birds each with the 2 colours of their house and a central tree that has variations of the house colours. It is wonderful to see the final installation of this artwork and the time and effort that has gone into this.
