Wow time is flying by! Can’t believe it’s almost time to wrap up for the year and get all those final pieces of artwork finished.
Thank you to Artist in Residence Tamie Nakamura for helping Grade 1 and Prep students to create stunning mosaic pieces for the outdoor Lower School playground!
Working with tiles to create animals and plants from the natural world was both challenging and rewarding for little hands. Our library makerspace was full of bright, colourful pieces as students carefully created their individual works, which were then placed into larger mosaic jungle and ocean scenes. It’s hard to believe how beautiful and well-crafted the final result looks!
Tamie originates from Japan but has spent many years living in Hong Kong and Mauritius. Her background is in textile and fabric design and her work is influenced by her family and young son. Tamie’s large scale works with young students are wonderful and whimsical, and we can’t wait to have her back again!
