Years 1 - Year 4 Nursery, Pre-Prep & Prep School

In Pre-Prep, the Creative Curriculum topic is ‘Carnival of the Animals’, the music suite by the French composer Camille Saint-Saëns.  

In this lesson, students looked at how animals have been represented in Aboriginal art.  They used their finger-tips to do their own versions, having chosen their favourite animal to draw first.  

The students had to think about whether to camouflage their animal with a similar background or make it stand out against a contrasting background.

As you can see from the images, the Year 1s created some very striking pieces of Aboriginal-style art.
