Taniwha Art

We have looked at a few new  art techniques this term. One of these is resist art. This is achieved by first planning a design in chalk. We chose to design a taniwha because we had been reading Maori myths. Next we coloured our page using crayons, taking care to plan for white space by using white crayon. Finally, we used a black dye to wash all over our work. The waxy crayons resist the dye instead fills all the little spaces and washes over our chalk lines giving our work some sharp black outlines. Cool! Come and see them all in the foyer and class.
