The Junior Artists were enthusiastic to learn and discuss the forthcoming Chinese New Year, which commences on Friday 16 February. The global celebration will soon be upon us with spectacular celebrations. The Chinese New Year is a festival for families to come together and wish each other peace and prosperity. There is keen interest each year to see which animal is represented and the boys were delighted to learn that this year is Year of the Dog.

The Year 1 Artists explored their risk-taking abilities through the application of a limited palette of collaged materials. The boys were delighted with their immediate outcomes, each dog differing in character and personality. They were open-minded in their approach to the task and each communicated their responses in an individual style.
