The children of Year 6 had the great opportunity to work with our Artist in Residence in the Junior School, Kaye Clancy. Kaye is a renowned ceramic artist in Australia. She has work in the collections of numerous public galleries in Australia. In Term 3 and 4, the children learnt new skills, techniques, and processes and extended on their hand-building experiences to construct clay self-portraits with decorative frames. The children were introduced to exiting ways to finish and decorate their work with slips, coloured underglazes, and earthernware overglazes. These finished clay works have been combined into a collaborative wall mural artwork that is displayed at the Junior School as a memento of the Year 6 class of 2014.
