Kaurna Plant Totems

A group of year 6 students have undertaken a Kaurna research based art project. They responded to native South Australian plants that were used by the Kaurna people. These students created original drawings in response to these plants, which they then turned into ceramic tiles. Their artworks will be incorporated on 6 totem poles at the college and mosaic tiles will be added by Community Living Week students. Kaurna words of plant names have also been incorporated with this artwork. We have been most appreciative to be able to use these words thanks to the Kaurna Warra Pintyanthi Committee.

Here are a few images of the development of this project.

The Historic

A group of year 6 students created ceramic houses in response to historic buildings in Adelaide. They were able to ‘visit’ these buildings via google earth and create sketches of what they could see.
