W1 Cluster Art Exhibition @ Clementi Public Library
As part of the W1 Cluster Art Exhibition at Clementi Public Library, our school conducted an animation workshop for members of the public on 1st June 2012 during the June holidays. The participants took a tour around our "Artique" Art Gallery where the Art teachers gave a short introduction of our school’s Art programme and achievements. Participants were then led to the computer laboratory where a series of animation lessons were conducted. Our I.T. trainer, Ms Linda, together with our Art Teachers, introduced & guided them through the animation process using webcams, props as well as the software, Monkey Jam. Upon completion, the participants went home with a CD containing a copy of their animation work. It was a fruitful day for all the participants!

Throughout the 8 weeks lesson, pupils will complete 2 projects, 2D relief and 3D works. Progressively, the Primary 5 pupils take on clay lesson to the next level by using the Ceramics Clay to further refine their skills on the techniques that they have learned. Pupils learn and enjoy creating their individual 3D Artwork as well as group projects. They also experience glazing their ceramics works before sending them for firing.
P4 Digital Art Using Wacom
In Primary 4, pupils use Wacom pads, which consist of a digitised pad and a stylus, to draw and paint digital art pieces. The objective of these lessons is to allow pupils to have an understanding on how to put illustrations on digital format. Within 8 weeks, pupils will create art pieces inspired by the works of famous artists such as Van Gogh and Picasso.

In the animation module, pupils become scriptwriters, directors, editors and cameramen. Through team collaboration, they learn the basic quirks in animation; which could only be successful through good team effort and communication. Some of the works produced were interesting and technically competent!
