Artist in Residence
St Lucia Kindy continues to value the amazing benefits that involvement with an Artist in Residence programme brings.
Art is a great medium for children to express their thinking and represent their unique ideas that they may not be able to verbalise.
The children are fortunate to have the opportunity to work with an artist. The art specialist encourages each child to explore different textile mediums as they extend their learning about our environment. By working in this way over a number of weeks, they will have the opportunity to more fully explore the creative processes. By the end of term, each child will create a collection of textile pieces and contribute to a collaborative outdoor work.
Each year a Family Art Show and BBQ is held. The children are able to proudly showcase their unique work for their families to see.
Here are some of our little artist's self portraits.
The children have worked on a project exploring birds as the focus. They have observed form, detail and shape in their environment and used recycled materials to create a beautiful collection of work.
