Holy Spirit in Black and White

Term: 3 Year: 2013

"Holy Spirit in Black and White" is a group piece by the Grade 6 students (2012) of St Bernadette's Primary School, Sunshine North. 

Students were invited to explore line through the skill of etching. Each student in the year level created their own interpretation of what the Holy Spirit means to them and depited this image on a small piece of black and white scratch paper.

Using skewers, student's portrayed delicate images and symbols reflective of their preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation. These individual images were then adhered to a canvas, some were sliced diagonally, to create a central cross design with rays emitting.
