Balmoral Arts Festival
Arts festival is a wonderful time of year where the whole school is given the opportunity to grow their creativity and build skills with in the arts. Each student from year 1 through to year 8 spends three days making art. Every year there is an artist in residence working in the school to inspire children and show them how artist work. The festival ends with a school wide exhibition where each student displays a piece of work and whanau and friends are invited to come and celebrate with us .
Kāinga Rimu's art work
Art week in Whanau koru
In Kāinga Kōwhai we have been inquiring into birds and what makes a bird a bird. This lent itself beautifully to bright and colourful art projects. The Piwakawaka's decided to learn about screen printing and print their drawings of birds. The Pukeko's let their imaginations run wild with big bright crazy birds.
The Piwakawaka's started off drawing every kind of bird you could imagine. There was lots of close looking of shapes and lines and some beautiful drawings were produced.
