As 4th classes are reading Storm Boy, the art teachers were asked if the children could come up with a fabulous classroom display to go with the book’s body of work.
No problem at all – as the art sessions were already focusing on the form and shape of birds – and a pelican and shore birds certainly feature in the book.
So now both classes have wonderful bunting illustrated with shore birds and coastal landscapes. The birds were block printed in black with foam board, then hand coloured. The landscapes were drawn with coloured pencils and crayon.
Come and see the final results first hand at our Open Day (Sunday 26th May).
