Junior School Art Exhibition A young visitor does not seem to know what to make of one of the masked diners! Mesdames Dot Wallace, Rhonda Watts and Patricia Duke as they appreciate the display Ms Amy Stannard looks at the Year 1 Strange Worlds book An astonishing kaleidoscope of colour was prepared by Mrs Ronnie Pratt, her art team and of course the lads of the Junior School for the Exhibition on August the 15th and 17th which truly reflected the talents of the boys. Floating colourful discs and large cut out letters forming the word CHANGE, walls lined with works wherein the boys gave their artistic interpretation of such social issues as pollution; a dining table around which were seated guests wrapped and tied a la Christo and wearing blank white masks reminiscent of the Japanese NOH were most absorbing and many a person attempted unsuccessfully to disturb the actors’ imperturbality! Large books of paintings were also a feature attracting much attention, while the opportunity to take a piece of free form cardboard and use it to do one’s own art work was taken not only by many children, but also adults as well Digital and regular photography was also featured, as were several computer video and PowerPoint displays. Two washing lines of digitally printed T-shirts hung on one wall, FESTIVAL OF THE ARTS > MICHELE ZARRO | INSTALLATION ARTIST Year 5 Year 4 6A’s Chapel Installation Junior School Visual Arts Students had fun with old suitcases during the Festival of the Arts this year. Contemporary Installation artist Michele Zarro worked with boys from PK to Year 6 piling, balancing, constructing and de- constructing sculptural forms with old suitcases donated by parents for the workshops. Each class worked collaboratively in groups creating a wide variety of sculptural forms and under enthusiastic hands of the boys the structures took on a life of their own as mini cities, cars, trains, shelters or robots. In discussions, students were also challenged to consider their role as an audience, making connections between the suitcase as an art object and its use in daily life. Treatments of coloured tape, wool and paint created bold patterns of line, shape and texture in the final installations and provided the boys with visual examples of the elements of design. Year 6 assisted Michele Zarro with her final installation in the Delmar Gallery which formed a spectacular backdrop for the 2008 Junior School Art Exhibition. | Ronnie Pratt Year 3 38 TRINITY NEWS Year 1 Pre-Kindergarten
