TY Storyboards Bring Colour To Collinstown

The TY students of Collinstown Park collaborated with their art teacher Ms Strumble to create storyboards and bring some colour to the school. The students made their own mosaic tiles and glazed them. Each piece of art is based on the student’s identity in the school.

If you want to see TY’s amazing and creative artwork it’s located in the main entrance in the hall.

Some TY students made a basketball to show their love for sports. Each piece is individual and really colourful. They bring everyone a bit of cheer when they come into school in the morning. To each student the artwork has its own meaning, it express what their love and interests are and how they see things from their point of view.
