Here are some of the wonderful insect designs created by Year 7 students as part of the Refill program:
On January 29, 2019 – the second day of high school, new Year 7s young people from Miller Technology High School attended a big arts workshop day. This creative and fun day introduced them to their peers and teachers, CuriousWorks, Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre! They took part in three art stations – Challenge Games with Sarah Emery, Tree-house construction with Howard Matthew and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander dance exchange with Katie Leslie.
Refill students created an artwork that explored the shift of the sky from day to night using a silhouette drawing and a rotating split pin background.
Students created a planet surface by imprinting shells and objects into a sand mould. The mould was then covered in plaster of Paris and set. The outcome was an extremely textured surface that looked and felt just like a rocky terrain.
Young people used their own star sign to create a DIY constellation projector using a paper cup and a torch. These created a beautiful starry night sky when we turned off the classroom lights and turned them on all at once.
