Your students have been very busy in art class of course.....
Alongside their hong Kong Skyline Unit in class, the R2 Artistes have had the magnificent experience of working with a Real Live Artist! Italian Artist Francesco Lietti ( who is based in Hong Kong ) came to work with all R2 Students for 2 whole days.
First of all he showed us his own artwork as he told us all his artistic story and what brought him to Hong Kong.Our children loved meeting with him, he became a warm engaging friend to the R2 students
Then back at the artroom ....we began to create our three large murals
Students were practicing their techniques with Mrs Kirk and Miss Flowers to get prepared to use stamping and printing methods to make Hong Kong buildings.
This prepared them for the mural and also created the basis for their very own skyline.
This is our work so far......we are just finishing up and our murals will be soon hung up for all to see at the front of the LP building in Tai Tam.
First of all we asked the Grade One students what they understood by the concept of the Solar System. They all drew what was in their mind.Take a peek:
We then began a study of the planets, and using a range of plastic objects, we used our "eyeball" measuring to draw all 9 planets in rough size comparison to each other.
Then we studied the planets on our giant screen which allows us to see colour clearly so that we could decide which colours Mr Brush may need to visit to execute each painting in turn....
Just look at these amazing watercolour paintings:
Which are now being placed within our previously made outer space circles:
Just look at these amazing Solar Systems!
