Māori Art (with Rosie)
We are turning traditional Māori kowhaiwhai patterns into modern day pieces of art. Everyone is re-creating a piece of art that tells a story. Once we have come up with a design that we are happy with our good copy will be broken up and hopefully displayed on 4 canvases / 4 pieces of card. Each canvas / card will represent a different corner, of the original art piece that we have developed and they will be joined together. Each canvas / card will be completed using a range of tools and techniques, such as: sketching and shading, pastels and blending, dyeing and bleaching, and printing and layering etc. We are hoping to have an art exhibition at the end of the term to display our art and we may even have an auction!
