Art inspires happiness

WONTHAGGI North Primary School has the happiest art students.
A five week drawing course under the guidance of art teacher Joy McKaige has developed the children’s talents from stereotypical stick figures to figures with proportion and detail.
The whole school used the song Happy by Pharrell Williams to inspire their artwork.
The lessons were aimed to encourage the students to add movement to their creations. Mrs McKaige taught the children about the human body, using wooden models to start with and expanding to the students modelling for each other.
Each student was then asked to draw a self portrait looking happy and active.
The self portraits have been combined to make a whole school mural across the corridor wall for friends and family to enjoy.
