Last week, students in Year 5 enjoyed a day full of art! Skilled staff from Bali Art Media set up in the Secondary joglos to give demonstrations on traditional Balinese batik methods as well as clay making. The other Year 5 teachers gave demonstrations about embroidery, where the students were given the opportunity to embroider using multiple types of stitches to create a work of their choice. In the next couple of weeks, the students will be creating pillows from their batik fabrics, learning how to stitch fabrics together. They will also finish their clay pieces by painting them. It was a wonderful day filled with loads of creativity while learning about traditional Indonesian methods. – Ms. Monica Steiner.
