The Artnet Expo at Atwell College was once again, a great success this year. The annual event, in partnership with Atwell Primary School, Aubin Grove PS, Beeliar PS, Hammond Park PS, Harmony PS, Jandakot PS, Success PS and Fremantle Language Centre experienced a huge turnout of students and their families.
This year’s ArtNet Expo was given the theme of ‘Art Now,’ focusing on the work of contemporary artists, sustainability, technology and much more. Take a look at the spectacular art produced by our students at Atwell Primary School!
Students in all year levels have been producing a variety of ANZAC day themed artworks in preparation for the whole school ANZAC ceremony on Friday 13th of April. Take a look at some of the wonderful work they have created on display.
The students in Years 4-6 have been exploring the medium of watercolour paint. Check out their beautiful watercolour samples!
The Year 1 students participated in an outdoor observational drawing activity where they sketched the school playground. The students thoroughly enjoyed the experience and used all of their senses to create their masterpieces.
This term, the art monitors have been organising regular in-school art competitions. Last week, the Year 2 classes had the task of creating a self portrait of what they wanted to be when they grew up. Congratulations to Ashlee and Minu for taking out first and second prize.
Our Art Monitors for 2018 are: Kunyi Chen, Ella Wharton, Jemma Ogle, Makayla White, Hayden Eckermann, Taj Rowe, Jeska Santiago, Alyssa Gapoy, Tahlia Pope, Imogen Lee, Madison Green (absent) and Amber Smit (absent).
To start the term off, every student in Year 1-6 created a monochromatic (one colour) artwork that represents themselves. These mini artworks have now been joined together in the library to form a giant rainbow!
This term in the art room, we are looking at the bold and colourful art movement Pop Art! The Pop Art movement began in the 1950’s and is a style of art based on simple, bold images of everyday items, such as soup cans, painted in bright colours. Each class will explore various Pop Artists who created pictures of consumer labels, photos of celebrities, comic strips and much more! Our key focus artists are: Richard Hamilton, Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein and Claus Oldenberg. Take a look at the colourful creations we are currently working on.
