Mrs Cook’s Room 3.1 class were fortunate to visit an art display by Aboriginal artists from Carnarvon featuring woven and cast metal artworks at the Residency Museum earlier this term. The class visited with Ms McNamara as she was successful in gaining a grant from Arts on the Move.
Menang Elder Mrs Carol Petersen was invited into a recent art lesson to work with the class and interested parents to create weaving based on the Jillinbirri Weavers. This was completed during the art lesson and over lunch resulting in an amazing collaborative woven art piece.
The art work will be on display in the Albany Public Library during NAIDOC Week.
