Junior School Art

Recently our students had an opportunity  to celebrate love and loved ones as their art lesson coincided with Valentine's Day.

Art offers an opportunity to express emotions of love and care through strong visuals.  Our students were thrilled to be able to give their drawing of themselves and their families as a token to celebrate love.

The cards they created were drawn on Acadamia cotton rag paper. This is artist quality and is manufactured in Italy, where it has been made for hundreds of years. The high quality texta work meant that the cards will last a lifetime. I was very moved by how invested our little Leonardos were. Furthermore, follow up discussions from students and parents were very moving especially when hearing about joyful tears.

Our Art Department is planning to celebrate the themes of 'The family'  and 'Love' in many more  visual ways, as everyday should be a day of celebrating the love of our families.
