I had an email today from a teacher at Bilambil Public School, New South Wales, Australia, sending me images of art works completed by her class. I was absolutely blown away by them!
The class of Year 5/6 children have made 3 works to illustrate the famous Australian biomes: The Great Barrier Reef and the Australian woodlands. This was a 10 week project to study artists who repurpose products, combined with a science focus on sustainability/waste.
The class tried to focus on placement, colour and shape with the students working in rotating teams. The canvases are 50cm x 50cm. The materials were either donated by students or things the local charity shop could not sell.
I think you will agree that the results are simply stunning:
