Art Taster Day- Cubism- Visual Arts Celebration

On Friday we had an "Art Taster" day. We looked at different artist models to get inspiration for our Visual Arts Celebration. 

In one of our rotations we looked at the work of Picasso and Braque who developed Cubism. They had a huge influence on Western Art at the beginning of the 20th Century. 


Here are some of our initial thoughts about Cubism: 

Hunter R- It is like cutting things up and putting them back together.
Nye- Shatter a vase then put it together without all of pieces or instructions. Like an unfinished jigsaw
Georgia- it looks like something being reorganised
Rim- It is layers on layers
Ruby- it looks like expressing yourself in two ways. Two different feelings at the same time.
Isabella- it looks like a picture that has been taken apart then put back together.
Eva- It looks like pictures stuck into pieces then put in random places.
Joni- It is abstract art and does not matter if it looks real. It is imaginative stuff rather than copying from real life.
Naomi- It has been scrambled and does not make sense.
Lily V- Everything is mixed. There is a normal drawing then adding it with something else. It is like a professional artist mixed with a kid drawing.
Lachlan: We are making two faces. One of them is different to the other one in a different way.
Angus: It is like getting a photo of someone’s face and cutting it out and putting it in different places. It is making things look stranger than usual. 


Visual Arts Celebration - 5.30pm to 7.30pm on Wed 21 and Thurs 22 August
Our annual Celebration of The Arts and Student Learning is on the horizon. Our spaces will be open to the community on Wednesday 21 and Thursday 22 August from 5.30pm to 7.00pm. 

We would love to see whānau on either of the evenings to view the artworks across the school. Expect to see art in response to our inquiries over the last two terms and hear music inspired by our learning. 

To ensure the evening runs smoothly, please read the following:
  • There will be QR codes linked to children’s artwork in order to listen to music, stories and background information relating to their art. A QR reader on your cellphone and headphones will be essential!
  • Bring a torch to navigate the way as the sun sets.
  • Keep an eye out for further information on Class Blogs and in the Newsletter.
  • Parking is always tricky. If possible, walk to school and make it a night out for the family. If you do need to park - please think “will the bus get through regardless of whether you parked legally or not…?!”  or this could be the result!
