Pacific Inspired Artwork

Last week on Wednesday we were meant to have sport but it RAINED!

So instead we did some Pacific inspired artwork with Miss Trayes using crayon & dye.

We had to remember all we had learnt about repeating patterns last year and think of lots of great ideas to put on our pages.

Tait has written a great recount of how they made them:

Shapes Gone Wild - By Tait

First I had to think about what I was going to do.

Then I had to draw my picture in pencil.

Next I went over the lines in crayon. I chose black, blue and green.

Last I dyed mine. I dyed it violet.

Have a look at how some of them turned out. They are BEAUTIFUL!
