Art Competition Submission 2022 – from Farmborough Heights

QLD - The Kindergarten children of 2022 were asked how could they improve their community? What makes them happy? What makes them feel safe? Their responses were to put in more parks, to care for the natural environment and to add infrastructure that brings more people: places like cafes and pools. The children also wanted to provide beds, couches, foods and shelter to the people who need them most. The children drew and painted their responses into a collaborative floor book over the course of a month. We then used their artwork to create a mixed media collage, adding photos of important places in our community. The artwork forms a map of places that are significant to us, and includes the children's definition of community:  The place where the people are.

Lifestart and the Prep Students of Cedars Christian College explored what a neighbourhood is, who the safe people in our neighbourhood are, what we see in our neighbourhood and what we like about our neighbourhood. The children then did their own small drawing of what they like about their neighbourhood and we collated the drawings to form this artwork. It was great to see what the children enjoy about their neighbourhood even a precious picture of a cat who was lost in their neighbourhood.
