Zart Art - Supporting teachers, parents and students in creative education.
Zart Art are doing 42 workshops focussing on Book Week 2012 in Box Hill, metropolitan Melbourne, country Victoria, Canberra and Tasmania. Go to the website to see where and when it is being held in a centre near you. Each participant receives a free copy of the Book Week Book Champions Read and spends a couple of hours making some of the activities included in this full colour publication. If you cannot make it to a workshop the book will be available mid June for purchase from Zart Art for $43.95inc GST. Book in now to avoid disappointment.
The Zart Mali sculpture is finished!! Dee presented Mali to teachers involved in the program during the first week of May using a presentation that showed the design process which was colour coordinated to match the colours of the continents. Participants in the workshop also created a Paper Magiclay sculpture of one of the Zoo's Extinction Fighter Characters! What fantastic results in a very short amount of time. We are looking forward to participants posting their finish artworks on our Facebook Page! Thanks again to Sean and the Melbourne Zoo for including us in this exciting project! Mali is on display in the Zoo's Corporate Reception area until Term 4, when she will return to the Zart Customer Service Centre! We are looking forward to seeing all 100 elephants on display in the Term 3 holidays!!
Last week we
were lucky enough to have Jungala and Colleen run two unique workshops about
Indigenous Culture. Participants learned firsthand about the best way to help
children engage in and appreciate Indigenous Culture as a gateway to exploring
artworks. Jungala helped us form a better understanding of how to respectfully
incorporate this essential part of Australian History in to the classroom.
Thanks again for making the journey down from Alice Springs. Please check out
our Facebook Galleries of Song Line Artworks created by participants. We
encourage you to post descriptions about your work and your individual canvases
on our wall!
