Pohutukawa




8 and 9 year olds.
Pohutukawa is our Christmas flower. It comes into bloom around Christmas each year. The students made an observational drawing of a flower. They made a cardboard relief of their drawing. They made layered wax crayon rubbings, adding more detail as they saw fit. We could go on to make ink prints from the cardboard reliefs.

  2. Many thanks. A pohutukawa is not an easy plant to draw, they did well.

  3. Wow- I LOVE the connection between the two projects. Agreed, the prints are fabulous- I've never thought to layers colours together when doing a rubbing. Thanks for sharing!! I've never heard of a Pohutukawa before, either!

  4. Lovely feed back, thank you. The children are enthusiastic about the layers of colours they create.
