Creative juices have been flowing in Pre-Prep this term! Inspired by the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program (PYP) transdisciplinary theme, ‘How we express ourselves,” and fuelled by a visit to the National Gallery of Australia’s Versailles exhibition, the children have embraced the opportunity to express themselves, their thoughts and feelings by using a range of creative methods including paint, clay, sculpture, oil pastels, charcoal, origami, dramatic play, storytelling, puppetry and more.
Inspired by their experiences, interests and understanding of the world around them, the artistic works they have created are spectacular and demonstrate a sense of wonder and connection to the world around them.
To conclude this inquiry, and drawing from the experience at the NGA exhibition, an ‘ELC Art Extravaganza’ will take place on Wednesday, 29 March from 5.00pm–5.45pm at the Early Learning Centre.
ELC Coordinator, Kate Columbine, is delighted to see the youngest members of the CGGS community expressing themselves and giving others the chance to appreciate their innovative spirit.
“The artistic works created are a wonderful reflection of the unique perspectives of pre-school children and are truly something to be celebrated,” said Kate.
ELC children, parents and friends are invited to come together to celebrate the children’s creative consciousness as they meander through the ELC grounds and Pre-Prep classrooms, viewing the art works created by the children throughout Term 1.
