We are very lucky to have a visiting artist in our class for the next 5 weeks. Her name is Elena and she is a master pattern maker by trade. She also creates and designs her own jewellery.
We are using the theme of The Aborigines to inspire our art. So far we have created dotted animal pictures as well as making our own jewellery designs using copper wire and beads. Have a look at some of our work.
