Koru Art

WALT create artist inspired artwork

We used the Koru art of Raewyn Harris to give us ideas for our own koru patterns.
These are the steps we took:

  1. We experimented with different colours to see which colours went well together. We used the colour wheel to help us.
  2. We practised drawing koru and shapes on a piece of paper
  3. We continued doing our draft copies with pencil. When we were happy with the colours we chose we coloured in the draft.
  4. We put chalk lines around our patterns.
  5. We dyed the draft copy to see if it looked alright and the chalk lines that had soaked up the dye looked clear.
  6. We transferred our design onto A3 piece of cartridge. We had to make the chalk lines thick and clear so they would show up when the dye was painted over top.
  7. We dyed out design.
My next step is to make the chalk lines thicker.

Here is a photo of my art.

e.g # 2
* 17 children wanted to play soccer. there where 5 people in each team.
how many teams where there and how many children would have to be reserves?
17 divide by 5 = 3 r 2 (3 x 5 +15, 15 + 2 = 17)
