Book Week 2016 – Rainbow Serpent
Inspired by Indigenous storytelling and Shaun Tan’s artwork for this year’s Book Week, I have created a large Rainbow Serpent to brighten up the entrance to the junior reading room.
I used 12 pieces of A3 cardboard joined together to make the serpent. I used Outback as the font to create the words on the serpent, which I downloaded from dafont. I simply printed the words I wanted and traced them onto the serpent.
The colouring was completed by my fabulous student helpers – anyone who was free during lunch breaks or after school and didn’t mind indulging in some relaxing colouring. I find the students love helping to create displays (especially when it involves colouring in) and it increases their connection to the finished display.
