'Busy Bees 8' by student at Livability Victoria School

About the artwork

This extraordinary Bee was created using different fabrics before being carefully painted using a brush with ‘hand over hand’ assistance. The student was giggling as they squeezed the bee and the paint was squishing through their fingers! We created the artwork whilst listening to ‘Flight of the Bumblebee’. The students chose media from a selection. We used egg boxes, honeycomb, ribbon, cotton wool, toilet rolls, tissue paper, glue, paint and we had lots of fun.

Please note: our students have taken their creations home to keep, this piece of artwork is a print of the original artwork.
