Visual Mihimihi

We have been busy working on our visual mihimihi. This art project is going to part of our About Me slide show project.

Firstly we planned out how we could visually represent our home, our whānau, ourselves and our school. 

Some of us decided to use symbols to show this as well as incorporating kowhaiwhai patterning. We learned that different cultures have particular symbols and patterns that are important to them.

Next we slowly worked through the process of sketching a self portrait. For some of us, this was the first time we had taken the steps to create a self portrait with the correct proportions. 

Now we are transferring our plans to larger paper. This will be coloured in with pencil so that there is a contrast with the pencil sketch self portrait.

Please come into Koru 1 and check out the finished product. We will be discussing all the different elements of our art works and what the symbols mean to us with our classmates.
