Wearable Arts

We have been learning all about design on our way to create our wearable art garment. We started with some challenges…
1. In teams create and build the tallest tower


Our tower is the tallest, but we didn't finish in time.

We worked together; sharing ideas and helping each other. We have learned that it is really important to design and plan our creations before we start. This means we all know what we are trying to make.
2. Build a shelter for Leo our class bear


We learned that it can be very tricky to work in groups and we all have to take turns.
3. Work together to create a costume for 1 member of our team to model. 
Here we are in our costumes!
Working together to share ideas.

We remembered that it is important to design our work before we start. We also learned that we have to be careful with our materials, newspaper and tinfoil rip quiet easily.

We are going to use what we have learned to create our wearable arts garment.

Success Criteria:
Research and find my inspiration
Design and plan my garment (How I see things)
Follow my plan to create my garment
Create a garment that is going to last
Create a piece of art – an idea or a story or message

Reflection

My favourite part was: making my bat wings, painting my mask and all the effort that I put in.

It was really hard when: getting started with making my wings but then Heidi's mum helped me.

Something that really helped me was: Having a plan because you can follow the steps and also Heidi's mum helped me make my wings.

Something new I learned was: what it feels like to be on stage in front of your family and lots and lots of people.

You looked carefully at images of the bat and used these to help you design your garments. Your mask has pointy ears and a brown face and that is the way you see the bat. It can be very tricky to turn your plan into a garment and you worked very hard to manage this showing great perserverance. Your next learning step is to add some details to the design so all parts of your garments are planned.

Reflection

My favourite part was: my favourite part was learning the Maori because I like learning

It was really hard when: it was hard to remember all the words.

Something that really helped me was: practising lots and lots

Something new I learned was: more Maori words

You and your buddy have worked together to create a a fabulous clear poster with loads of body parts labelled in English and Te Reo. I can see you used the success criteria to help you, what a great learner! I am pleased that you like learning and that loads of practise helped you. I like lots of practise to help me learn too.
