Self Portraits

Self Portraits


These are the self-portraits that the students completed in term one 2018.  The background is a marbling effect with shaving cream and paint. 
After the marbling had dried, they painted their face. When this too had dried we used a variety of equipment to stamp their facial features and hair.  
Following this, the children painted their neck.   when the stamping had been completed and was dried we attached the origami shirt.   



Hot Cross Buns


This video occurred as a result of my class of 5-year-olds working with my adult learners cooking class.  Due to the Easter Holidays just around the corner for the students I decided to join the two classes and have some fun. What a great way to end a term and start the holidays. 

If you are a parent at Finlayson Park School and this cooking class interests you please inquire at the school office.
