Tekoteko Art - Room 3's Guardians

On Wednesday 30th June 2010 Room 3 had an art session with Ms Sherning. We were drawing Tekoteko they are Guardians for a Marae or for us in our Classroom. First we had a practice and experimented on all the things that we could put on our Tekoteko. Then we got to the hard part we had to draw it properly and we had 2 chances ONLY, 2! We got to the part where we had to do the outlines, we had to put in thin and thick lines. We had to do curved lines and straight lines. All the lines we could think of. Then we used our patterns of the ones we experimented on to do the real thing. We had to do lots of work before we got to colour in and paint. When we got to that stage we had to paint carefully so that paint wouldn't get on to the pastel but sometimes we made a mistake! At the last stage of colouring in we did a collage we had to use newspaper and we had to use black and white because they were our main colours. The next day when they were dry we did the pastel lines that we had gone over with the paint again. Then we had to do the border we used 4 long strips of paper and put them on top bottom and sides. Then the process was finished! Our Tekoteko's look wicked!
