Classes take part in international art project
Two classes from Umina Beach Public School are participating in an international art project.
"This term, students from 3K and 6A are involved in an international artist trading card project," said Umina Beach Public School principal Ms Lyn Davis.
The theme of the project is about how children around the world see themselves.
"Students have created artworks that will go on display at an art exhibition in Perth, along with those of thousands of other school children from around the world.
"When the exhibition is over, 3K and 6A students will exchange a set of artworks with another school," Ms Davis said.
"This fabulous project has provided students with the opportunity to explore and reflect on how they can represent and express themselves through visual art.
"The 6A students chose to represent themselves through an Instagram inspired artwork, while 3K's pieces were influenced by Picasso's cubism.
"Importantly, the project also allows students to consider themselves as part of a global world and to learn a little about children their own age from diverse regions.
"Our students have thoroughly enjoyed working on this project and are all looking forward to receiving their trading cards in the coming months," Ms Davis said.
