Year 4 | Moreton Bay Boys' College

Task 1: How We Organise Ourselves


Taking responsibility for Art in a public space became the experience for students in this unit. A small group collaborative design, based on students’ first initials evolved progressively, and was ‘installed’ using pastel on an exterior wall adjoining Year 4 classrooms.

Task 2: How We Express Ourselves


The portrait artwork of Kehinde Wiley was explored as inspiration for students to incorporate symbols of their life experiences and links to personal culture in designing a backdrop for their self-portraits which were created with the use of their iPads.

Task 3: Sharing the Planet


The change in MBBC landscape over time was the starting point to this unit on landscape design and environmental Art. Students produced a collaborative ceramic piece for the Hand Garden, established in 2020, that incorporates visual ideas and typographic messages that relate to how we can ‘Give Nature a Hand’.
