Brunswick students get creative

Students at Brunswick Heads Public School have been painting and creating up a storm this year, ever since the arrival of art teacher Shari Askew.
Last week parents coming to the school for teacher interviews were treated to an exhibition of the children’s work, a burst of vibrant colour and creativity featuring robots, self portraits, still life, 3D art and more.
Ms Askew usually works as a high school art teacher, but her temporary placement for two terms gave her the opportunity to work with primary-aged children, letting their interests guide her in choice of subject for their art works.
“I let them influence me,” she said, “with the boys’ love of Star Wars and the girls talking about flowers.”
