ENRICHMENT GRADE REMOTE LEARNING VISUAL ARTS GALLERY 2020

Here you will find a gallery of artworks created by the Enrichment Grade students at Cambridge Primary School over the past few weeks.

This includes any artworks created over the two weeks of the school holidays when these students were, like most of the rest of us, confined to home.

It also includes artworks created during Week 1 and 2 of term 2 2020. The Visual Arts task for week 2 for all grade 3/4/5/6/E students was to think about the many creative ways the students have used their time over the past few weeks and to send me photos of these creative artworks. Perhaps they have been drawing, knitting, painting, making models, crocheting, making jewellery, printing, constructing, cutting, making collages, etc, etc, etc ???

I will continue to update these online galleries on this blog as students send photos of their artworks to me by email.

The students will be delighted if you leave a comment or a question about their artwork.

REMOTE LEARNING 2020

As the Visual Arts teacher at Cambridge Primary School I have decided to refresh my blog and use it as the space to display the  artworks created by my students during this strange, weird remote learning term 2 of 2020.

I will also provide details, procedures and videos for set tasks for different grade levels on my blog as the weeks of term 2 progress. All my students will be notified of set tasks for Visual Arts via their weekly grid sent out by their classroom teacher.  The entry for Visual Arts on the grid might say go to the Back Art Room Blog and provide a QR code link to take the student to the correct blog post.  Then on the blog I will provide them with the detailed instructions of the task to be completed.

The Visual Arts entry on the grid for Week 2 Term 2 just asked all grade 3/4/5/6/E students to email photos of the artworks they have been working on at home over the past 3 weeks. My email address is

shelley.menhennet@education.vic.gov.au

In the Cambridge Primary School Newsletter I also said that I was more than happy to receive artwork photos via email from the Prep/1/2 students even though I am not teaching them this semester.

And hooray, hooray, several students have already responded! So I will try and get all of their wonderfully individual artworks up on this blog by the end of today so you can admire their creations!

Luckily for me I really enjoy working on my blog, yet rarely fit it in to my usually crazy, busy schedule.

And isn’t that a sad sentence to reflect on! That something I honestly really enjoy doing is almost never done because I am ‘too busy’ to fit it in! I do think that when we all are released from lockdown that we will all consider more what it is that makes us happy and will try to include these activities more in our daily lives.

 

Thanks for reading this post!
