Making a mark

Art with Whaea Dagmar is always incredible because the process she uses ensures creativity and success for ALL!

 We talked about our theme for the year 'Make your mark' and all the different meanings it could have then we looked at some Art by Reuben Paterson and Whaea Dagmar and how marks on paper can represent different things for different people.

Next we explored the different symbols/marks that represent us including our cultural backgrounds, our faith, our family, and the things we like and like to do.

We each filled a whole page full of marks while listening to music.

Our outcome is to create a mark that represents us just like the chiefs who signed the Treaty of Waitangi.

Finally we began our partnership hands piece which we are still working on filling with our different marks. Watch this space for our finished art!
