Miss Sharp's Art Room

unleash your inner artist

I have learnt that when it’s water week everyone can use water and they’re supposed to use water for most of the day and we have to do posters about it. Water makes us survive and it helps us live. Water week is helping us look after our water. In Art we the skills we used were drawing, colouring in, painting. I learnt that we have to try and stay in the lines for our poster. A good poster is nice and neat and shows people what’s happening. I drew a shark, some people, a garden and the sun.

We’ve been doing posters for Water Week. We can use sponges to put paint down the page. My poster had a girl drinking water with plants. It’s colourful and I outlined the words and the pictures so people say “I like that I want to have a look at that poster”

I liked Kobe’s poster because it had lots of details in the picture.

I am learning to use a pastel to colour in big sections on my work. I am making a person drinking water and the rain came and then there was a big flower coming and then the rain went away. Water is important because it’s good for your heart and it gives you energy and keeps you alive. Its good for flowers. Put bright colours and words so people know what its about and want to look at it. It gives you information.

People are working on their water week posters and they are doing a very good job of it. Lots of people are concentrating on their work. They are using bright colours and putting good information on their posters. I like Xavier’s poster because he is using a lot of bright colours.

We worked on making the title and the pictures in her artwork stand out, by using texta to outline. It’s very colourful and uses the whole page so her aim is now to make sure we can see the details in her poster. Sarah also experimented with pastels to go over some of her coloured sections and add a bit more detail and shape to her design

I asked Ella about her work and I found out that she was outlining her trees so they could stand out and look nice. I asked her if she was enjoying doing it and she said yes and it was very fun. I watched her do some of her work and it looked like she was doing a good job and I liked it.

I learnt to outline and I learnt to not scribble a lot when making a poster. My poster was about water week and saving water and helping the environment. Some countries don’t even have much water. I drew a big tank and it has parts going everywhere into every town and there is a pump in countries that have dirty water and the pump makes clean water for them. There is a pipe that takes all the dirty water and it goes to a factory where they use it to make clean water that goes back into the pipe so it can be used again.

Artwork from 1/2H


I learnt that we need to be creative and make our posters look good. People will want to read them if there is lots of information about what you’re doing on it. They need to stand out and be colourful and bright. The writing needs to be dark and big so people can see it. We did some outlining using texta and oil pastels to make our writing stand out. I put lots and lots of water pictures on my poster. I painted the whole page with water colours.

Fun in 1/2TJ

thumb_IMG_0705_1024 thumb_IMG_0686_1024

We worked on lettering and making big bold writing to catch people’s eyes. We also practised our painting skills choosing the best brush, and adding water when our paint got fluffy.

I’ve learnt that we have to use the paintbrushes by holding them up on the end where the paint is. It’s like holding a pencil. I did boats on the water because boats travel on water.

We have been doing a water fact. I have done a water plane because our posters are about water. I have used lots of colours. I learnt that you need to put your brush in the water so you can get the paint on it and it’s nice and not fluffy. Jacob and Delta have been doing a good job of their work because they are doing their work and not mucking around.

More Fantastic Posters

thumb_IMG_0682_1024 thumb_IMG_0681_1024 thumb_IMG_0679_1024

Ashton’s work was pretty colourful. It was nice. He could have tried to make his colours a little bit darker and added a few more pictures to make it stand out. He made a good brush choice painting with a thin brush so he could do detail.


Ryan is still designing his poster. I reckon it’ll look really cool when it’s painted. He has the title water week and he’s got raindrops and a little bit of a border. It stands out really well.


My poster has a title and it has a car towing a water tank on the baclk of the trailer, which is 300 litres. It goes to homes that don’t have much water and gives them a tank each. When it runs out it gets refilled. I made it colourful so people can see it. It has taps, a road and a house.

Isobel says that her poster is about water week. She has done lots of colourful things on her poster. There are clouds and a tank to catch water to save it.


Ashton’s was very colourful, he has done very beautiful, different colours.


Mine had a girl drinking water and it was raining to keep her plants alive. I also had written water week and drawn clouds. I learnt that saving water is good and it also keeps animals and people alive. We can help other people learn by sharing our posters where people can see them.

Water Week Posters

Water Week Posters

14th August 2015

We are learning about Water Week and we are making posters. They have to be big so that we can see them from far away. Mine has a girl drinking some water and I am drawing around the lines of the letters to make them block letters. I’m going to draw some plants too. When I am finished drawing I will colour it in with paint.


 I am learning about water and the water is in the sea and the waves are going to run the electricity. There are going to be 3 pipes that go into the water and the blades suck up the water to help make electricity. It’s going to be a colourful poster when I am finished.

Water Week Posters – 1/2TJ

13th August

Today we are making a poster for Water Week. I wrote Water Week and I am drawing a garden and a cloud that is raining. We are using watercolour paint to paint our pictures. We need to make sure we hold our brush down the end like a pencil so it stays in the lines and doesn’t go flip flop. I thought Jessi and Regan were doing a good job of their posters today.

Reporter – Scarlett

Photographer – Brodie

 The plane goes on a water runway and the cars and the trucks drive on water. He’s drinking out of a big water straw. There’s a river and a plane and I drew lines to show the plane is going really, really fast.

12th August – From the Art Room

I’m looking at different ways to get all the information up here. I know that it can get a bit repetitive with grades doing the same activities for each level. So i’m after some feedback. How would you like to see it? A daily post? weekly? different artist reviews? lesson plans? let me know what you would like to see and we’ll see what we can do. 🙂


Using charcoal and black paint.  – 12th August 2015

Today in art we started drawing and painting on our trees. Some people had thick trees some had thin trees. We are doing an artwork, which is called Winter Trees. Last week we played round with charcoal then started our artwork. We drew a circle, which represented our moon then coloured in our background by smudging charcoal. Today was our last day on our piece of artwork. It was very fun, making this piece of artwork. Lots of people have finished their artwork today.

Water Week Posters – 1/2AC 

12th August 2015

Today everybody’s pictures looked beautiful using the watercolours. Everything seems to be going well so far. Everybody is doing a good job. Lots of people are blue because we are doing water posters and the blue is for the water. Some people have drawn water places where they have a funnel to collect water and some people have drawn mountains and drops of rain.

I learnt that water is very, very, important. I also learnt we use colours to make our artworks look good. You have to choose the right size brush for your painting so you don’ t go out of the lines. If you keep painting in the same place and see bits of paper in your painting it’s a warning to stop or you will get a big hole in your work.

3/4FP Monochromatic Trees

5th August 2015

In the 3/4 area we have been shading backgrounds of paper and putting a moon in, because we are going to put a tree in and try to shade it with charcoal. A great example was Miss Sharp’s which looked like it was from a scary movie with the moon shining behind the tree. Other people have been going for a less scary look. I’m going to try and make mine look scary. It’s kind of funny how the colour choices and shading can make it look scary. If it had a blue background and green tree it would look awesome but it wouldn’t look scary. This is our first time this year using charcoal. Charcoal is fun, smudgy and puts together effective artworks.

1/2H – Watercolour Posters

11th August 2015

I’m doing a painting of a place that sells scary things. I chose to do a free painting today. Everyone is making Water Week posters. We are using watercolours. I like painting because it’s fun. I’m good at it. I like to paint pictures on paper, especially motorbikes. They are my favourite thing to do. I am looking forward to doing clay this year in Art. The best thing about art is painting.

Winter Trees – 3/4B (monochromatic)

11th August 2015

I drew a cactus on my paper today because I like the green and the spikes on the cactus because its inspiring to me, it just make me feel great about myself. When I was painting I had to just get the spikes right and get the sticks that are poking out of the tree. I had to use black paint and used my skills painting small lines. It was fun painting until the end because I was finished and didn’t have to paint any more. I’m pretty good at painting. I saw Summer, Rhiarna, Tori, Khloe and Bella doing a great job on theirs too.

1/2 Miro

Just wanted to add these clips here. The students have really enjoyed learning a bit about Miro. We found that

* He makes colourful artworks

* His artworks are a bit weird

* He uses lots of shapes in his artworks

* sometimes you can kind of see what it’s supposed to be but it doesn’t really look real.
