OCEAN Huntingdale Primary School 2011 Year 4 Students

The Environmental Science Art workshop is designed to involve primary school students in environmental matters through drawing in the field, research, discussion, and painting. The students work together to create a large painting representing individual habitats within an ecosystem showing associated land and marine animal and plant communities. During a field trip to the beach students make a visual survey by looking carefully and drawing the flora and fauna. Building on the field observations, drawing continues in the classroom with reference material. Attention is given to the importance of micro and macro flora and fauna as the basis of the food chain. Working individually with the artist, students learn how to plan a painting, sketch with charcoal, mix colour and apply paint. The whole school community watch the artwork growing and other year groups are encouraged to become involved in the environmental issues. The painting and this presentation are learning tools for other year groups in the school community.
