Dulwich College Junior School would like to congratulate the following students for their achievement in being selected as the Finalists in the City Weekend Parents and Kids Art and Writing Competition.

Cynthia Sekely, Ella Perez, Jacqueline Shih, Sienna Guise, Skylar Chan and Roger Xu.

We were all treated to a lavish ceremony at The Millennium Grand Hotel in Hongxio last Saturday.

Special congratulations go to Roger Xu who won the overall prize in the 7 to 10 age range out of all of Shanghai for his " Freak of Nature" fantasy animal made from materials that ironically could harm the Freak of nature's habitat. The fantasy animal was made into 5 different endangered species on land. Rogers piece is a sculpture and he enjoyed hammering and sawing in making his piece.

Ellie Michelson, who has left the school, is also a runner up and her family in Singapore have been notified.

It was a wonderful occasion and once again, I am delighted and proud with the successes of the Dulwich College Junior school children in Art.

Dear Children,

We are delighted to announce yet another very exiting competition that shall give you an opportunity to have your work printed on the front cover of Time Out magazine.

For Time Out Family¹s next issue, to be published in early March, the magazine think it would be a lovely idea to have children from the city¹s International schools design their cover based around the theme of the Year of the Sheep and Chinese New Year.

The cover does have a format so it is very important that you take note of the dimensions and allow for the space for their title and bar code. There is a format template attached, so that you have an idea as to how to compose your design.

Here are a few tips:

Bright colours are always eye catching.
Compose your picture so that it is bold and lively (try not to make your images too small).
Fill the space well. An idea is also to make a paper cut too!
Remember, keep it relevant: its the Lunar New Year and its the Year of the Sheep! How do we all celebrate Lunar New year?

Please hand all your entries in to me by the end of January, with your name and class clearly marked on the back. They need to be sent off by Friday 30th January!

There is a terrific prize for the winner and I know that you can do it!

Good Luck to all you talented artists!

A few DCS students were lucky enough to attend an inspirational speech by Dr. Jane Goodall last week.
Dr. Jane Goodall is the founder of the 'Roots and Shoots' organisation and shared with the children all the work that is currently taking place across the globe regarding conservation and animal welfare issues.
Dr. Jane's speech began with a terrible reminder of the hundreds of animals facing extinction every year around the world due to the complacency of human beings.
Following on from this topic, some of our Junior School children would like to raise awareness of a very special but endangered creature called a Pangolin. This marvelous anteater can be found in Namibia, Africa and in South East Asia. It is so unique and is almost prehistoric in appearance. Its scales are made of keratin (the same material used for horns and hooves) and a tongue that stretches further than the animal itself. Pangolins have no teeth and eat up to 70 million insects a year.
Unfortunately, Pangolins are in deep trouble. They are bundled and shipped in crates and are transported to China and Vietnam where they are used in restaurants and the Chinese traditional medicine trade. This illegal wildlife trade is responsible for the rapid decrease in their numbers worldwide.
Our Junior School children wish to have these creatures in their world when they grow up and want to make a stand! The children have formed a group called 'Children Run' where they make crafts to sell so they can help the pangolins.
Below you will see some designs to help raise awareness for the Pangolins. These designs have been put on mugs that can be purchased from the college's uniform shop.

Please spread the word to help these very vulnerable and precious creatures today.

Our Year 6 students really enjoyed the opportunity to visit the magnificent Shanghai Maritime Museum on Friday 17th October.

The children made pencil studies of various items of interest including the famous explorer, Zheng He. Some of the children were able to make detailed sketches of many original designs including that of a bronze bell that would have accompanied Zheng He on his famous expedition in 1431.

The replica of a huge junk dominated the main hall and attracted the interest of all the children as they were able to imagine the billowing sails as it journeyed in the South China Sea – this will certainly help the children create some wonderful artwork over the next few weeks.

The children made some wonderful line drawings and many made good use of shade and depth using tonal contrasts – I am very proud of the work they produced during this special visit.

We are delighted to announce the City Weekend Art and Writing Competition. This competition is for students who are between 7 and 12 years old.

Will it live on the moon with eyes full of stars?
Students can create their own wonderful creature in their own setting. They can let their imagination flow!

The children in Year 3 have been learning about ancient civilizations in their topic work and have learned specifically about The Romans and The Mongolians. In Art the children have learned about the nature of mosaics and their subject matter. They have researched designs and have come up with their own (see sketch designs) of birds, wolves, patterns, and Roman warriors, for example.   The children then translated these designs onto mosaic tiles, learning how to arrange and cut the tesserae's to enhance their designs.

Do you know what a Pangolin is? Well, they are scaly anteaters, nocturnal mammals that live on land in tropical areas. At day most pangolins curl up into a ball and sleep; curling up into a ball also defends them from predators.

A pangolin has long tail, short powerful limbs and a conical head and a sticky tongue. Some pangolins live in trees but most are ground dwellers. Ground dwelling pangolins have strong legs capable of digging into termite mounds for food. The arboreal pangolins have prehensile tails, which they use both for balance and as a hook to hang from.  Arboreal pangolins roll up a tree hollow at night to sleep.

Pangolins vary in size. The Long-Tailed Pangolin is smallest, at about 3 feet (1 metre) long and weighing 3-4 pounds (2 kg). The Giant Pangolin is almost 6 feet (2 metres) long and weighs 70 pounds (32 kg). The Giant Pangolin’s tongue is about 2 feet (61cm) long, and internally is anchored to the pangolin’s hipbones.

But did you know that there are few still alive, that they are one of the most endangered mammal groups in the world? And did you know that humans are the cause of this?
They are used mostly for medical purposes. The fetuses of a pangolin and its blood are used for medicines; the meat is considered a delicacy, their skin makes attractive leather for boots and stuffed pangolins are sold as souvenirs.

Pangolins are being poached at levels over 3000 times higher than rhinos; roughly 1,200,000-1,300,000 pangolins are being poached. Over the last 15-20 years the pangolin population has decreased by 50%.

Below are some websites you can view to discover more information about pangolins.

It has been a little over one month now since we sent off our entries to the City Weekend Art & Writing Competition on the theme of the 'Candy Factory'.

I am delighted to announce the two winners of the Parkway Health 2014 Calendar Competition, proceeds from the calendars will go to charity to support children with Leukemia.  They are:

Well done! You have done us proud!
They were chosen out of all the entries from in and around Shanghai and only 12 children in total were selected.

Secret Squirrel Art Alert:
Introducing an exciting personalised Christmas present idea:

We are delighted to have sourced various models of transparent plastic covers for an iPhone 4,4S, 5, 5S or 5C for your child to design and make for that very special person at Christmas time.

We have the covers ready in the Art room for your son or daughter to paint and decorate with a unique and personalised design.

This does not need to be rushed and can take until Christmas to make and will retail at 50rmb at the Winter fair and near Christmas. All proceeds will go towards the moon bears at Animals Asia Chengdu Rescue Centre and the Noughts and Hearts charity.

Your children can come to the Art room to collect covers and we will start our very own designs.

Art Lovers Alert: The Impressionists paintings are here in Shanghai!
The Impressionists were a group of painters who lived and worked mainly in Paris and France during the 1880's and up to the turn of the century.  They are best remembered by pretty pictures on the front of chocolate boxes, however, they were far from being about creating nice paintings of every day life, they caused a revolution in Art that has changed art ever since.

Barbizon through Impressionism: Great French Paintings from the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute are unveiled at the Shanghai Museum until 4th December.

The exhibition begins with the landscape paintings of the Barbizon school (those who painted the Great Outdoors) and Impressionists, featuring representative works by Camille Corot, Jean-Francois Millet, and Theodore Rousseau. There are also paintings by Camille Passarro, Claude Monet and Pierre-Auguste Renoir.
The 73 paintings on display take hours for visitors to appreciate.

It is a must and not to be missed exhibition! Especially for Year 3 who are studying the portraits of Eduard Manet (one piece in the exhibition).

Junior School Charity Project : Cycle Re-cycle.
The Will Foundation boys were in Junior School this week and painted my bike in the style of the Sunflowers by Vincent Van Gogh (an Impressionist painter).  If you would like to have your bike painted for the sum of 80RMB, you too can have a style of the impressionists (dots, sunflowers) painted by the children in the Junior school. The money raised will go towards Noughts and Hearts and the Moon Bears. Please bring your bike to the Art room on Tuesday and Thursday lunchtimes. Thanks!

Year 4 have been studying Environments in their topic work. In art, we have been focusing in on architecture and urban landscapes.

The children have been learning about the architecture of modern and traditional China.  They have incorporated their building in a ceramic shape, and have studied and recorded the Chinese designs of ancient art relics. I am sure you will agree this design work is really striking.

Year 5 have been studying the wonders of the Universe. They have learned all about Nebulas and Supernovas. We have been amazed to learn that the 92 elements that make up every part of every material on Earth are made from the centre of an exploding star!

That means we are made of the same particles that make up the mountains such as the Himalayas and of creatures such as dinosaurs!

In fact, carbon, that is part of every particle in our bodies is only created in the very depths of a supernova.

Here we have replicated the wonder of our universe in textile pieces. We have used silk paints and angelina fibre and sewed on details in the form of beads and sequins.

Here is a selection of the beautiful work we have made.

We have recently announced that the Junior School Charity Day is on Friday, 22nd February 2013. There will be a hive of different activities all around the school that day to help raise funds towards our charities: the adoption of our 4-year old male panda bear, Ming Ming at the Chengdu Breeding Base and our newer cause in helping the Moon Bears from their lives of misery, through the charity Animals Asia.org. It would be fantastic if we were able to raise enough money to adopt one of the six bears recently rescued from an illegal bile farm in Sichuan province.

In our Art History CCA class, the children are learning how to depict portraits in the style of Leonardo Da Vinci. If you would like to have a quick sketch portrait of your child in the same style using the Smufato technique, I shall be happy to draw it, using sepia colours. All proceeds and donations shall go towards the charities. I shall take a photo/sketch in the Art Room with a light source and shall make the portraits in my spare time. It will be ongoing and will take about 1-2 weeks, depending on demand! The donations go directly to Finance for the Dulwich Bears. Mock-up examples are available for you to see in the Art Room. Please contact haze.chen@dulwich-shanghai.cn or pia.kanaan@dulwich-shanghai.cn for a booking/sitting during break times.

This week has been a very successful one for Dulwich College Junior Art and we would like to share our news!

Two weekends ago, we celebrated the Parkway Health Calendar Contest in a smart ceremony at Concordia for the 12 finalists from all over Shanghai. Shu Yong Tan from 3P was our winning entrant and I was very proud that she represented Dulwich College with her wonderful painting of an underwater scene, showing competence in the use of colour and contrasting tones. Please see the photos below of her with her winning entry on the theme of Save our Planet.

Last weekend, I was very pleased to attend a lavish ceremony at the Renaissance Yu Yuan garden in which 30 Art student finalists were recognised for their talented entries in the City Weekend Art and Writing Competition. We were proud of our three finalists representing Dulwich College, and even more delighted to learn that Vernita Zhai (Year 6) won the overall Winner's prize (one of three winners in all of Shanghai and surrounding cities). Candy Hsu (Year 6 ) won the First Runner-up prize and Cathy Tan in Year 2 won Second Runner-up in her category.
