Last term The Hub learnt all about Art Installations! We now know that an art installation is...
art that is created, constructed, or installed on the site
art that is often three dimensional
art that is designed to transform a space
We knew ANZAC Day was coming up and after reading the famous poem 'In Flanders Field' we chose to create a Poppy Art Installation.
First we created a template flower which we then paper mached with 3 layers of paper.
Our next step was to paint the poppies a vibrant red colour. We added several layers of paint too.
Next, we added the stamen with a pipe cleaner and decorated our wire stalks with green straws.
Our last step was to create the art installation!
Our school has been enjoying it every day this week! Did you seen it too?
We hope that our art made our viewers ask questions! Questions like....
What do you see, hear or sense?
Do you see more? What more can you find?
How does this work of art make you feel?
What is this work of art about? Is there a message?
How does this work of art relate to you?
