Science experiments in the art room
Art and alchemy
ST JOSEPH'S Year 8 students became alchemists during art lessons last week in their first experimentation with materials that produce reactions.
This first unit is linked with their learnings in science where they are studying physical and chemical changes and reactions.
Wearing safety glasses, face masks, gloves and aprons, students explored the reactions, marks, mood and beauty that can be created using bleach on drawing ink.
The oxidation process was inspired by an unconventional series of work by famous pop artist Andy Warhol.
Students experimented with different implements and with saturation of bleach solution on ink to make a range of marks on their medium.
They had fun experimenting with the technique and created some interesting art.
GRANITE Belt swimming trials were held this week with 26 students from St Joseph's primary campus participating.
After a fun day of racing, nine students were selected to represent the Granite Belt in 50m races at the Darling Downs competition being held on Wednesday, March 6, at Gatton.
Congratulations to everyone who competed on the day and to swimmers who qualified to race at Gatton: Jessica Pradella, Lillian Kendall, Isaac Kay, William Kay, Darius Jansink, Katie-Lee Jansink, Jayden Green, Jaiden Morello and Jacob Hennoste.
