This is my 5th year at EMS and 10th year as Primary Art Teacher. I'm looking forward to have a lot of fun with students teaching about artists and art concepts . We will explore vast techniques and materials with students in year 4 and 5. This academic year Ms. Nits, our great teaching assistant will support us in this learning process.
My classroom is on the last floor in the ECC building.
Recently year 5 students produced digital animations.
Seif Abu Jundi in Year 5-2 together with Ms. Mareena and myself prepared and ran a lesson about FlipaClip, an application that is used for making digital animations. First we tried this project in 5-2 form. It was so successful that later we taught the lesson in rest of year 5 classes. All of the students enjoyed producing art on computer. It was also a nice change to have a lesson in our beautiful library. In the photo on the left you can see planning for the lesson.
If you didn't have a chance to come to school for 3 Ways Conference, you may take a look at photos of Art displays in Primary school buildings here.
These bulletin boards that you can see below are in block F

As a continuation of our unit we talked about characteristics of Chinese Landscapes. We discuss why they use vertical format and they are mostly very mysterious. Next students painted their own landscapes.
