AWESOME Arts Creativity Sparks Self-Expression at Parnngurr Community School
Residency activities worked on developing the fine motor skills of participants with children moulding their hands and painting them in a variety of vibrant colours to create a joyful sculpture in response to the school logo. Students also explored wire wrapping sculptures of dragonflies, and sourced materials from the community to create a series of woven artworks. Parents, teacher and elders from the community were invited to celebrate the student’s creations in a special community BBQ with plenty of fruit and vegetable platters to share.
The Creative Challenge program aims to engage schools in developing a meaningful art practice as a way to connect to community, foster pride and to breakdown social barriers.
