Sculpture By The Sea

Today we went along to Bondi Beach for the Sculpture by the Sea exhibition. Here are some of our favourites along with some nice views along the cliff tops.

Colourful Mexican Houses

We have used colourful Mexican houses as inspiration for these artworks. First the children cut out some house templates from card. We made the roofs flat like many houses in Mexico.

We then used the templates to make the images of houses nestled on a hillside. The children took care to rub out parts that wouldn't be seen because they would be covered by the buildings in front.

The children used watercolours to paint their hillside village.

Pacifica Gods

Today we went along to Casula Powerhouse for the Pacifica Gods Festival and exhibition. We got to see some traditional Pacific Island's dance and music performances along with the Pacifica Gods exhibition. We also tried Tongan Pig Spit Roast.

The children took a clay workshop where they created Pacific Islands style masks. I'll show you photos of that when we get them out of the kiln.
