Building Each Other Up in Love and Learning

Transforming bad news into positive change

Last week we gave you a sneak peek of Year 3s Black History Month Art Project. 

This week we can show you the wonderful finished article. The art work is on display on the top floor of the school outside the Year 3 classrooms.

This beautiful piece is made from the pages of the newspaper and is designed to showcase a full spectrum of colour to represent diversity in our school. It is inspired by Maren Hassinger. 

Maren Hassinger is an African-American artist and educator. She is known for her sculpture, video, performance art, and public art in which she often uses materials that are natural or industrial. She is the director emeritus of the Rinehart School of Sculpture at the Maryland Institute College of Art.

It beautifully illustrates how we can transform negative news into something wonderful that will light up our lives.
