Look at this great display of work outside the year four classrooms! Everyone worked hard to create a beautiful neat version of their story based on the Claude series of books.
The children were introduced to the British Canadian artist Ted Harrison. His works are inspired by the beautiful landscapes in Yukon in Northern Canada. His use of psychedelic colours made his creations stand out. As a class, the children drew the
patterns they wished to form their landscapes and used watercolours to create their individual pieces of art.
They also learned about the Inukshuk landmark that represent ‘acting in the capacity of a human’ and are also used as hunting and navigational aids.
