OUR WINGS ARE FINISHED
Have you been in the main hallway lately? Our beautiful wings are finished, made up of all those incredible feathers that the 3/4/5/6 students and staff worked on at the start of the year. Our wings, like Street Artist Kelsey Montague’s, are interactive as there is a gap in the middle of the wings for you to fit and have your photo taken! Don’t forget to bring your device with you when you come in to have a look! I will email some photos to Kelsey Montague so she can see how her street art inspired us!
I have started photographing the students standing at the wings, looking as if they belong to them and they are about to fly away!
Please remember that the feathers are made of paper so they should not be touched while you are looking at them. And thanks to Mrs Naushabah Shahzad for helping put the wings together!
CONGRATULATIONS NEW ART AMBASSADORS!
The students have been waiting sooooooooo long for the new Art Ambassadors to be announced as Mrs Menhennet was waiting for the next grade 3-6 assembly to do it. Finally, we had an upper school assembly on Monday afternoon – and Mrs Menhennet wasn’t at school to make the announcement! AAAAGGGGHHHH!
So rather than make the students wait any longer here is the list!
Dinali 5A Brooke 5B Steph 5B
Zunaira 5A Asees 5B. Aleena 5F
Inaaya 5A Julia 5B Sithika 5F
Chelsea 6A Amber 6A Rishit 6B
New Art Ambassadors need to see Mrs Menhennet to get their badge!
I was truly overwhelmed by the amount of Expressions of Interest that were submitted for these important student leadership positions. I’m just very sorry that I couldn’t give everybody that applied a position.
I went to the MC Escher EXHIBITION at THE NGV!
The MC Escher exhibition at the NGV is a collaboration Japanese design company NENDO.
Nendo did an exceptional job of incorporating Escher’s art style into the overall design of the exhibition. The Escher artworks came from a special museum in Holland.
The exhibition includes many of Escher’s artworks from realistic pieces to more geometric mind boggling ones! The exhibition has a fantastic and interesting design and layout that you would never have seen before.
There is an awesome gift shop located at the end of the exhibition. Some of the products there included posters, books, skateboards, drink bottles, magnets, postcards, notebooks and clothing. You will not regret going to the Escher X Nendo exhibition at the NGV in Melbourne – but you need to hurry – it closes on the 7th April!

Thank you so much for all the donations that enhance our program. Throughout the year I will inform you of items that can be recycled through the art room. In the last week or so we have received:-
paint sample cards
assorted plastic lids
etc, etc, etc
The art room would really like to receive some magazines to fill up our magazine bin that is used all over the school.
The fabric bins are absolutely full so we don’t need any more fabric until further notice.
