Kulpi gets creative
KULPI: Artworks created by students and their family members from Kulpi State School during a five day cross-curriculum art, science and design workshop went on display at Rosalie Gallery in Goombungee last week.
The workshop was put on thanks to Flying Arts Alliance’s Small Schools Fund, allowing students to create their own unique ceramic artwork.
Students at KSS and their family members worked collaboratively to design, model, glaze and fire a series of ceramic artworks under the guidance of experienced artist Dianne Peach.
The program allowed students and the broader Kulpi community to learn the complete process of producing a finished piece of pottery, just like professional ceramic artists.
Kulpi State School was able to host this program for their students and school community thanks to the Small Schools Fund, a grant that provides schools with 50 or fewer students in regional and remote Queensland to apply for funds up to $5000 for curriculum-linked visual arts projects.
