We will know we can do this when we can:

Term 2 Art Attack

We are learning to: 
·                make a tapa cloth.
·                choose a design to complete
·                follow the procedure to make it using paper, crayon, vivid markers and Indian ink.

We looked at a lot of pictures of Tapa Cloth patterns and decided to base our design on flowers.

How we did it.
We had a piece of paper then we scrunched it up to make it really soft. We got to look at pictures and we drew our own picture and we coloured it brown. Then we used the marker pen and went all round the lines. We got the Indian ink and painted the pieces that we wanted to.
