I had a wonderful day with M10 which started with some observational drawings of animals. I then introduced the artist Hundertwasser and we looked at the Koru flag he designed for New Zealand in 1983. The class worked on a Hundertwasser inspired design using coloured pencils, which included a koru shape. After this they went on to design and print a koru design over the top of their drawing (using polystyrene printing block). The children really enjoyed the process and most were very happy with their results.
|Many of the children were really happy with their|
drawings and were reluctant to print over these. I gave
them the option to print on a plain piece of paper instead.
