The prep students were very lucky to have the chance to take part in the whole school Green Hat creations workshop run today. It was a fantastic chance to use the creative plank resourse in a large collaborative way which brought the whole student community together. The school had 20000 planks to use to create the whole school sculpture city.
The students all had some previous experience using the wooden planks as part of the school art program (thanks to Mrs Burns for purchasing them for the art room) and those skills were evident in the amazing way the students made such elaborate creations so quickly.
We too already had a few planks in our prep room but we already think we will be buying some more as clearly the children found them a great stimulus for creativity, open ended problem solving and expressing their creative ideas and thinking.
Here are some of the creations presented by the students.
