Creating Street Art

It has been a long time between posts. Grade 5/6 CS have been busy investigating birds, working on their understanding of Australian Government, creating 3D book reports and working with graphs. Amongst all of this we were very lucky to have some visitors from the Clarence Council who helped our class work on some stencil art. Over two weeks we cut out some stencils and then used these stencils with spray paints on large pieces of light weight board to create some art. Cutting out the stencils meant being very careful with sharp cutting blades. We used cutting mats to protect our work surfaces.

When we were working with the spray paints we were all outside and dressed in gear to protect our clothes. We also wore eye glasses, masks and gloves to make sure that we were being safe as we painted. We needed to share the pray paint colours and were shown some techniques to help us. Using the spray paints was a sticky business.

Take a look at the Animoto of our work.
