Year 2 art work

Posted on 18 Dec 2015

Art

The year 2 children worked with parent Gemma Simpson to create an art piece commemorating their time at the school. Gemma has been a member of the O'Connor Cooperative School community for many years as her two older children also attended the school.

Over several weeks, Gemma worked with the children teaching them different clay techniques. Each child created a cylinder featuring symbols of relevance to them. The pieces were glazed and fired at Chapman Primary School.

The installation will be a feature of the outdoor environment for years to come. We thank Gemma for sharing her expertise with the 2015 year 2 group.
