Other classes came to see the work. We had great chats about the artwork and they handed the older students shapes to stick on the wall. Some classes then went back to their rooms and created their own variations.
Time-lapse video coming soon.
A student art activity in the four weeks running up to the muslim festival of Novrus generated designs of fire, water, wind and earth. With the help of the school Visual Arts team four square meters of ply were cut into 16 smaller shapes which when put together will create a 3 meter long, 1.5 meter high Novrus mosaic. From 6th until 11th of April we will embark on a week of mosaic madness! Coming soon a time-lapse movie of the event.
