Artist in Residence – Term 3, 2018

Connection to Country – Ceramic wall mural and totem poles

In Term 3, 2018, I was invited to design and implement a project with the Reggio Emilia ELC 3 and 4 year olds, linking with their unit of inquiry – Connection to Country.

Students learned about Australian indigenous art, parallel lines, concentric circles and warm and cool colours. Through glazing their work, young artists learned sgraffito and embossing clay techniques. This large installation frames the ELC entrance with a wall mural and 3 interactive, rotating totem poles.
