During term one, senior students responded to events occurring around them when they created these artworks as part
of their studies about Natural Disasters.

Most children painted backgrounds, with foregrounds created from their choice of paint, charcoal, chalk and soft
pastels. Some used charcoal exclusively.

The varied stimuli which surrounded them during this turbulent period resulted in some powerful, telling depictions
recording the students impressions of ‘Black Saturday’, a major natural occurrence in the history of
our State.
