Visarts Summary to 4th Sept


Visarts summary to the 04th Septemberimage


Kia ora koutou,

Next week is an opportunity to celebrate te reo with your students - why? Check out this speech by a Kapiti College student and then you could; take this quiz, create your mih/pepeha with students using this easy template; learn about Wharenui, paint a colour wheel (Nga Tae) or employ some of these strategies for Te Reo in Art...get into it - think about what your kaupapa is for each lesson and do the mahi!!


Primary / Junior Secondary Links:

If you liked the Drawing Plastic animal shadows link and

Painting tree shadows both  great for careful looking, fine motor skills and recording observed information BUT - for shadow work of a more imaginative variety check out this dude -

Guy Larsen - drawing with shadows at the kid should see this site home of many great videos for students

Ellipse - short maths and art activity

Rhythm and movement activity using collaged figures and coloured paper


Senior secondary

Got a form class? Jeanette shared a link to http://www.onthefence.co.nz to support students in understanding their voting preferences. Encourage students to use their democratic voice wisely by checking out policies and aligning their views.
