Week 5: Art, art and more art!
For our artist study we are looking at Gavin Bishop for the next couple of weeks. He is a Kiwi and has written and illustrated some wonderful books
We looked at Kiwi Moon this week and discussed the different techniques he used throughout the book.
We focused on the koru design he used and tried to make our own version.
We used a stencil for the main koru and designed the little ones coming off it. Next we had to use green and black to create the dark, stripey koru look. We used a smudging technique to create the furry appearance as well.
Here are the finished ones. We sprayed brown dye and salt over the green dye to create the "bush" background effect. What a great bunch of artists there are in Room.
Well done to our Super Stars Isla and Charlie! We forgot to get the photo - will put it up next week :)
