Staying cool in the art room!

Let us never feel like this guy in the art room again!
Chelsea and the students have been very busy in art drawing sketches of what they would like to be when they grow up!! Bell Fundraising have turned these sketches into artwork which will be printed onto Tea Towels. Each class has their own unique artwork. 
Funds raised from this fundraiser will go towards the new air conditioner in the art room. So please, if there’s ever a time to buy up big, it’s this year! 
Tea Towels will be on sale on QKR! for $12 each and, as you know, make a wonderful Christmas present!!  Orders will be open until the end of the school holidays.

Fine motor

Today we have spent the afternoon completing some fine motor activities. There were 4 rotations; play dough, threading with beads, puzzles and picking up cotton balls with tongs. Regular practice of fine motor skills helps to build muscle strength in their hands and is important for writing, cutting, zipping, buttoning etc.

Grade 1/2 Art Club

This term Chelsea and Xenia are opening the art room on Fridays in the second break to do an Art Club with Grade 1 and 2 students. The club is a great way for students to create more art outside their structured weekly art lesson. The club also allows students to form friendships with students from other classes. The club is capped at 25 students, but once each project finishes a new group of 25 students can start. The students are currently creating some beautiful toucan artworks, using paper plates, tissue paper and paint. Keep an eye out on the arts blog: http://bellpsarts.global2.vic.edu.au for photos of the finished toucans!
