PYP 5 have just concluded their Art specific  Unit on Sharing the Planet . Their Central Idea was “ Artists use nature and its organic shapes and forms as a source of ideas.”  The students were asked to create art work for the administrative offices of the school and they chose to use this unit for this purpose. Having an authentic audience is a great way to focus the students. The students felt the sun was similar to the administration in school. Each student created a mixed media picture of the sun in their own individual style. These pictures were then put together in a collage-quilt accompanied by the student’s rationale for their work. The art work will shortly be on display in the administration block
