Grade 6 Incinerator Art Gallery Excursion

Grade 6 Incinerator Art Gallery Excursion

g6 1

The Grade 6’s have been lucky enough to be a part of an amazing SOLE (Self Organization Learning Environment) experience with 2 other primary schools: Bell Vue Primary School and Aberfeldie Primary School. This week they took part in the follow up session from last term.

We explored the ideas behind a range of Abstract Art on display at the Incinerator Gallery in Moonee Ponds. Amy (Art Curator) helped guide as towards a deeper understanding of Abstract Art as we all developed an answer to the big question: What is Art?

Afterwards we had a chance to make our own Abstract Art using a variety of resources. Some of them require you to look beyond the picture, and think upon a deeper level.

Overall it was a great experience interacting with students from other schools, exploring art and developing our inquisitive skills.
