ART Inquiry Term 3

This term we decided to look at ENTERTAINMENT.......We asked questions about "What is entertainment?" "How do we entertain ourselves?"
"Is Art entertainment?"......and finally the BIG question...."Is art a form of communication?"
We looked at traditional Maori art, carvings, kowhaiwhai, weaving and dance. We looked at the symbols used in Maori art.
One symbol is the koru...which takes its shape from the unfurled leave of a ponga fern. Traditionally the koru represents new beginnings and growth.
Here are some of our picture we made using pastels.
