Family / Whanau.
The new children to our school had a day in the art room today. They talked about who was included in their families / whanau. Some families are complicated. I allowed the children to choose who they felt were part of their families. They drew their families, thinking about who was the tallest etc. They used markers in plastic sheets that had been donated. The children then dressed their family members using a selection of fabric scraps. They lay the fabric over the drawing and could see through to the black lines. They drew on the fabric the shape they needed, then cut them out and stuck them in place.
