Recently, Year 8 Visual Art students enjoyed working with local artist, Deb Mostert to create the Migratory Tales Project. After looking at their own stories of migration, students investigated the life and challenges of a migratory bird species. Building on the approaches of our mentor artist, students created sculptures and mixed-media artworks that reflected their findings.
Students posed questions and recorded an interview with Deb. They will use the footage to create their next assessment task. They enjoyed the mix of using ICTs in real world situations and solving problems using hands on materials. Some exciting artworks are developing. They will be showcased in the CLI and Shared Space Gallery next term.
