Ngā Toi o Aotawhiti/Aotearoa
Kōwhaiwhai and Tukutuku were in term 1, this term Whakairo is the traditional art form of the tangata whenua that we will focus on. Māori art is an abstract art that tells the visitor of what is in the surrounding environment of the local tribe. Explore these art forms in this class while learning basic Te Reo Māori. We will even look at basic raranga using paper.
We will continue to work on Pepeha through all the art forms to create your own Māori artwork. If you wish to put your work on canvas you will need to bring your own.
Ngā kupu (the words): Ngā Toi - The Arts; o - of; tangata whenua - people of the land
