I can’t believe it is Week 8 of remote learning already!

We are going to be doing a bit of Visual Arts learning around the topic of the WORLDWIDE HEXAGON PROJECT!

The WORLDWIDE HEXAGON PROJECT

is an art project that started in Scranton, Pennsylvania, U.S.A. in 2006 when some secondary school Visual Arts teachers got together over a coffee.

Those teachers wanted to come up with an idea that all their students could work on together and thus the Hexagon Project was born.

Now thousands of students from all over the world participate in this annual project.

Cambridge Primary School participates in the WORLDWIDE HEXAGON PROJECT every second year and has done since 2012.

The WORLDWIDE HEXAGON PROJECT reflects on how we are all INTERDEPENDENT.

Most students easily understand the meaning of independence.

You start off as a baby not being able to do much and eventually learn to feed yourself and dress yourself as you learn and grow.

Once you start school you are developing as a child and a student and increasingly doing all sorts of things by yourself.

Being INTERDEPENDENT is how we all DEPEND ON EACH OTHER in different ways.

We are all –

  • local citizens (family, Cambridge PS, neighbourhood, Hoppers Crossing)

  • regional citizens (Werribee, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia)

  • global citizens

connected to and INTERDEPENDENT on each other for so many things and in so many ways!

How are you connected to others by your INTERDEPENDENCE???

Here are 2 short videos for you to watch about INTERDEPENDENCE.


It is very clear that we all have a much greater understanding of our INTERDEPENDENCE in 2020 after being locked down at home in isolation for many weeks and having time to think about how much we rely on each other!

The WORLDWIDE HEXAGON PROJECT  for students from aged 4-18+ uses the shape of a hexagon as a way for students to reflect on their INTERDEPENDENCE in an artwork.

I want you to create an artwork, using whatever materials you like, in the shape of a hexagon, reflecting your understanding of INTERDEPENDENCE.

When your artwork is complete I want you to photograph your hexagonal artwork with your device and send it to me by Saturday 6th June 2020.

I will then mark that you have completed a hexagon shaped artwork onto Compass and this will become part of your Semester 1 report for 2020.

The hexagon template for your artwork is available here. You are encouraged to print this hexagon and trace it to use as a template so all hexagons are the same size.

I will then print up the photos of  all your hexagon shaped artworks and display them at Cambridge PS.

If YOU want your artwork to be part of the WORLDWIDE HEXAGON PROJECT for 2020 you need to upload the photo of your artwork onto ARTSONIA.  This is your choice. If you do not want to participate in the WORLDWIDE HEXAGON PROJECT you do not have to.

ARTSONIA IS READY FOR UPLOADING!

  1. Put your finished hexagon on a flat surface that is a different colour to your hexagon.

  2. Photograph your hexagon with your device holding your ipad flat and steady. Make sure you can see ALL your hexagon on the screen.

ART ROOM NEWS

OUR WINGS ARE FINISHED

Wings Cambridge Primary School 2019

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!

Wings Cambridge Primary School 2019

Kelsey Montague wings Nashville TennesseeI 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!

Thank you

CONGRATULATIONS NEW ART AMBASSADORS!

Congratulations

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!

Congratulations to

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!

M.C. ESCHER @ NGV

Students in Grade 3/4/5/6 have been looking at short videos and prints of the incredible artwork of M.C.Escher this week. Many students have asked me for links to utilise at home so they can see more of his work. I have listed some links below.

I am hoping to attend the ESCHER X NENDO exhibition at NGV International in St Kilda Rd this weekend. It is on at the gallery until the 7th April and has 157 of Escher’s awe inspiring artworks on display.

The exhibition has been designed by NENDO, a design group from Japan and so many people have said to me that the way the exhibition has been set up is as amazing as the artwork itself!

Feathers and Art JOURNAL covers 

Students in grades 3/4/5/6 are finishing up their beautiful feathers which are going to be used to create a mural on the display boards in the main hallway. It is utterly amazing how different they all are and just holding a handful together is stunning. I can’t wait until we have 600 on the display boards!Wings feathers Cambridge Primary School 2019Wings feathers Cambridge Primary School 2019

This is the photo of Kelsey Montague’s street art we looked at which is on a wall in the city of Nashville, Tennessee.  She has also painted a pair of wings at Melbourne Central in the city. I wonder if you can guess what is going to happen to all the feathers the students have been making.

Art journal covers are being worked on next with each grade level creating their journal cover in a different way. I am looking forward to getting some of these on display as well. Last year’s display was excellent but I’m sure this year’s will be even better!

Art room helpers  – The Art Room still needs more helpers! Don’t be shy! I have plenty of art journals that need to be covered and display boards that need to be covered and pictures that need to be laminated, etc, etc, etc. 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.

 

Just see Mrs Menhennet for details.

 

What is an Art AMBASSADOR?

Being an Art Ambassador is an important and enjoyable leadership position. We help organise the materials in the art room like paints, pencils and textas as well as sort and store art work. We help clean during clay work by swe

Art ambassador 2019 Emma

eping up the dust and putting out clay mats. We clean and look after equipment like paint brushes so other students don’t have to do it in their art sessions. We help put up displays in the corridors and make display labels for them. The displays

always look stunning when we have finished! In 2018 the displays included things like clay work, the teeny tiny artworks, signs made by the Preps with plastic lids and many others. We even sometimes write up articles for the school newsletter!

New ART AMBASSADORS announced soon 

Thank you to all the students in grade 5 and 6 that have applied to be Art Ambassadors in 2019. Applications have now closed and the new ambassadors will be announced soon. J

DISPLAYS AT CAMBRIDGE PS

Our students and Art Ambassadors work hard to make and display our art work and we like to brighten up the hallways so they don’t look dull and boring. Please demonstrate our Cambridge Primary School value of RESPECT and respect other students work by NOT TOUCHING the displays. YoArt Ambassador Laurau are more than welcome to look and talk quietly about the artworks you can see but PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH!

FIELD OF PAPER POPPIES APRIL 2015

April 25th 2015 was the 100th anniversary of ANZAC Day.

I am part of the Special Weeks committee, which organizes all sorts of Special Events as part of the school calendar, at Cambridge Primary School, and we thought that as a whole school we had to do something to commemorate the 100th ANZAC day!

So we came up with the very simple idea of each student and staff member making a paper poppy and planting it into the ground to create a field of poppies.

Each grade was supplied with enough wooden skewers for one for each child but after that it was up to the teachers how they put their poppies together. There were no other rules or instructions to follow as we really didn’t want them to look all exactly the same.

I started the planting process off in the morning and then was running back and forth from the main art room during the day to take photos as the planting progressed. It was lovely to lift my head up from my work in the main art room and catch a glimpse of all the heads down and bottoms up action as the students and staff planted their poppies and then stood around admiring their work and the work of others. There was even quite a reverent, emotional atmosphere around the poppy field.

I did find I had to stand guard when I was on yard duty at snack time though as several Prep children thought it would be a great idea to run through and stomp on all the poppies – so much for being reverent, emotional and caught up in the atmosphere, when you are 5! paper poppies field April 2015 13

My battery died on my Ipad, of course, so I didn’t even get to photograph the complete field of poppies.

The photographer arrived from the local paper and took a lovely photo which luckily included my Georgie.(Yay! XXX) I think that is the only local newspaper photo Georgia has ever been in for her school so it was nice she got to be in one during her final year at Cambridge PS! As this photographer was there rather early in the day I don’t think he even saw the whole field of poppies.

A Bright ANZAC tribute at Cambridge Primary School. “The gardens of Cambridge Primary School were a sea of red last Friday as the school marked Anzac Day. The Hoppers Crossing school wanted to mark the 100th anniversary of the landing at Gallipoli with something special, so it created a field of poppies. Assistant principal Nella Cascone said the school’s 935 pupils and 90 staff made the flowers. A planting ceremony was then held last Friday afternoon, giving everyone a chance to pay their respects. Grade 6 pupils Georgia, Ayaan and Shaubing (pictured) were among the children who helped plant the poppies.” – See more at: http://www.starweekly.com.au/news/1836763-poppies-a-bright-anzac-tribute-at-cambridge-primary-school/#sthash.a5wHAjMi.dpuf

At the end of the school day there was quite a crowd as plenty of families photographed and admired the poppy field, with all commenting about how it had been a fantastic idea, and some being very moved by it.

Susie, my Science teacher colleague, and I, waited until 4.00pm to make our sad, regretful decision. The weather was changing rather drastically, with the wind becoming quite ferocious and a heavy storm predicted for the early evening. We had intended leaving the poppies in the field and collecting them up on Monday morning but the thought of arriving at school to find the poppies shredded by the storm and dumped all over the school yard was just devastating. So regretfully, Susie, Georgie and I, and a few helpers from After School Care, packed up the magnificent field of poppies into boxes before the storm could destroy them.

‘They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.

At the going down of the sun and in the morning

We will remember them.’

PAINTED CDs

painted CD 6 2015

I had always wanted to do some sort of outdoor mural and Cambridge Primary School has so many boring blank walls that I had to come up with something.

I decided on a CD tree after seeing these trees at inspirational Coburn PS in Melton, Victoria.  Mel and Kate, the incredible art teachers at Coburn PS, invited me over to their school (well, actually, I think I might have invited myself) to have a look at ALL their outdoor murals and they have done plenty of them!

They have mosaic murals,

They are everywhere and add so much to the atmosphere in their play space. So much better than bare walls!

So I decided I would have a go at a CD tree. However, like most things I do, the idea seemed to get bigger and bigger. Which grade level would I do this with? Perhaps the 5s? Or maybe the 4s and the 5s? Well, if I was going to do it with the 4s and the 5s I might as well include the 6s and what about the 3s? So, of course, I am doing it with the whole school!!!!

That’s only 940+ CDs – aaaggghhhhh!!!

So there will definitely be more than one tree. Perhaps it will look a little bit like this? This is a CD tree mural from Reservoir West Primary School created by Max Darby.

And hopefully all the CDs will fit as tree foliage on the one wall! We’ll just have to wait and see.

Gabby and Mel, who teach Prep-2 Visual Arts, tackled their CDs and I tackled grades 3-6.

We used Viponds acrylic paint, which is deliciously bright and glossy, as recommended by Mel and Kate from Coburn Primary School, as it is suitable for outdoor murals and will last on the CDs. I was stunned when I realized that Viponds Paint is actually manufactured in Victoria, in North Coburg to be exact. Not all that far from where I grew up in Brunswick. It always feels good to support Victorian manufacturers! You can get it from Cavalier Art Supplies in Geelong or Zart Art in Box Hill.

It really is gorgeous paint and I discussed why we needed to use it with the students and the huge price difference between it and ordinary school acrylic paint. They were all very careful with it and, in fact, the grade 3-6 students used less paint than I actually thought they would.

I asked the students to paint a background colour on first, which was very quick with a fat brush. I had eight students fit around one painting table and then place their wet CD onto the painting rack which was now covered in newspaper so the CDs wouldn’t fall through the holes. As this was so quick and easy to do it was easily worked around all our other ongoing activities for each grade level.

The following week the students were given back their CD and, as we had done so much pattern work earlier in the year, I asked them to decorate their CD with pattern/s.

I was so impressed with the range of finished CDs and know they will look beautiful when the mural is finally put together. That’s job number 4,095,864,345 on my to do list!

And the Prep – 2 CDs are just as lovely as the 3 – 6 ones, as well as being strikingly different! I will share some of them when I grab some photos of them from Mel and Gabby.

And as for the CDs, I didn’t buy a single one! I just asked the Cambridge Primary School staff and community to clean out their DVD cupboards and their computer desks and send all their DEAD DISKS to me! DEAD being scratched, obsolete, not working, DVDs, CDs, game console disks, start up disks for 5 computers ago, can’t even remember where it came from disks, and we had more than 1000 in no time!

So I hope you have enjoyed looking at all these lovely painted CDs and I’ll be happy to share the next instalment of putting the mural together when it happens. I’m sure the students would appreciate it if you left them a comment.
