Yes, it’s almost time for the Cambridge Primary School Art Show.

Can’t you tell by how frazzled I look!?!?!

It will be on Friday 25th of October , 3.30-6.00pm and Saturday the 26th of October 2013, 9.00am – 12.00pm, in the old gym.

clip_image008clip_image010

This is a chance for the Cambridge Primary School community to see just how talented and creative these wonderful Cambridge Primary School students are, with over one thousand pieces of art work on display! And I heard a whisper that the Cambridge Primary School Fundraising Committee are going to be selling Devonshire teas for your enjoyment at the Art Show as well – yum yum! I somehow think I’ll need a cup of tea and a scone by the time the Art Show comes around! I look forward to seeing you all there!

Art room helpers

If you would like to help out in the Art room just come and see me and we will book a time that suits you. You don’t have to book in for the time that your child is in the Art room and you don’t need any special skills, just a willingness to help out, and some time to do it.

It will give you the opportunity to experience one of our specialist programs up close!

Lunchtime boss

Thank you to Olya and Georgia from 4M who were the Main Art room LUNCHTIME BOSSES during our lunchtime art sessions on Thursdays over the last couple of weeks of term. Thank you for the excellent fulfilment of your duties ladies, and it is very pleasant to see children from Prep to Grade 6 in the Art room together during these lunchtime sessions. If you would like a turn being the Main Art Room LUNCHTIME BOSS on Thursday lunchtimes just come and talk to Mrs Menhennet and I will add your name to the list!

Don’t forget the BLOG

–Have you left a comment on the Back Art Room Blog lately???It’s had a lot of updates over the school holidays. Can you see your work on the Back Art Room Blog???

DONATIONS

 Thank you for all the donations that keep arriving at the main art room. We love to reuse and recycle! This morning I cut up a pile of paintings from when the grade 2 and 3 children were experimenting with sponges, and now in strips, they will be used by the grade 2 children in their weaving. They look stunning!

At the moment we need –

· NEWSPAPERS

· CDs (scratched ,not working or just a terrible singer, it doesn’t really matter as we will be using them for WEAVING

· CLEAN plastic bottle TOPS and LIDS (I’m starting to save them for a big project for next year –ssshhh!)

· Junk objects for printing (keys, buttons, spools, buckles, zips, cogs, screws, kitchen utensils, cutlery, clean sponges,etc, etc) Anything you can think of that would make an interesting impression in paint!

And anything else you can think of that you would like to donate!!!

 

Thank you!

MY AVATAR

It took me ages to get around to creating an avatar for myself that I could use on Edmodo for school, and on this blog, and other things. I made sure I gave myself a pointy chin where it used to be before those other chins moved in and hid it, and my new blue glasses!

And then I went and had a radical haircut and got my new BLUE HAIR!!!

So now I have to give my avatar BLUE HAIR – and it will probably take me another age to figure out how to do that!!!
