Collaborative Art

LI: To use different types of warm and cool colours to recreate a world-known painting from Van Gogh.

This week’s art is about Van Gogh and his famous art piece “The Starry Night”. The Class was divided into 2 groups of 16 people, 1 of each group remade “The Starry Night” in warm colours and cool colours digitally.Each group divided 16 pieces of the Starry Night with each person in the group. Working as a collaborative team we gathered all or pieces to 1 DLO to finally reach our desired outcome.

I found this activity Joyful because it was a fun collaborating with different people but it was also interesting to see how our work would look like when put together in the end.

Moko Ika Hika Waru

LI:to learn and picture the legends of the Taniwha creature

This week LS2 have been doing Taniwha art to represent our panmure basin because people say that some of the Taniwhas live in our panmure basin, and because we wanted to represent a Taniwha called Moko Ika Hika Waru, The Taniwha Moko Ika Hika Waru was described to have eight tails. The Taniwha is a Maori creature/legend that Maori believed to hide in the rivers, some Taniwha were also belived to abduct women.

I enjoyed this activity bacuse I got to learn more about the Taniwha Moko Ika Hika Waru, but it was hard to look at diffrent Taniwhas to see what details I could add to me and my groups Taniwha art.

Whale tails

I created a digital whale tail and a non whale tail.

First I made a digital whale tail. I drew mine about the food that the whales eat so I drew fish, then I colour it in blue, and drew the holes that help whales breathe, I made it like that  because it can also teach people about whales.

Then when I made my non digital, I drew fish and coloured them in grey,yellow and orange, then I drew two waves to represent what whales swim in.

Lastly I made the background blue because it shows what colour most whales are.

I enjoyed this task because it helped me get better at coloring, but I need too improve blending it in.
