Art Walk

On Friday our school hosted a Multicultural Art Walk. Each class made a different artwork from a particular culture and time and displayed these in their classroom for everyone to come and view.

It was a wonderful experience to look at all the other student’s art work and we thoroughly enjoyed learning about art from different cultures.
