Awhina Art

This week we have Ange Spears - the artist who painted the awesome mural on the library - here at school helping us to create our own class mural. It is based around our value of awhina - helping and supporting others.

On Monday we talked about what this means and how we can show it. We planned out our ideas by drawing pictures on paper. Today we painted our ideas onto wooden shapes which will be fitted together like a big jigsaw.

Here are a few snaps to give you a hint  of what you will see when it is all finished.

Summer has drawn her design onto her painted board. 
We used bright colours to paint our design.

You can see how the bright colours really stand out from each other. 
As we finished painting our part of the mural Ange placed them around the centre piece. We think our mural is going to look amazing. Ask us about how our pictures show awhina - helping and supporting others.

Hi Room 3,
What an awesome art you have created. You have really shown in your pictures the message of what awhina means. I like your choice of colours.
