Wearable arts

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 was very tall, but then it fell over...







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!
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: when we got to choose what night time animal we wanted to be because I wanted to be a possum. They have cute little babies.

It was really hard when: the making trying to get it look good - to look like I wanted it too. It was hard but very fun.

Something that really helped me was: my mums great ideas about how to do the making.

Something new I learned was: you can't get wearable arts from a shop, you have to make it.

You had a clear vision of what you wanted to create right from the start. You drew a detailed plan and knew what materials you needed to bring from home. You did your best to follow you plan, working hard by youself and with a little adult support at times to create your garment. You showed tremendous perservence, keeping on working on all the tiny details. What a great idea to take your possum home and share it with mum. Enjoy the show Eva, take the time to slow down on stage and show everybody your possum ( I love how you are even thinking hard about how you should move on stage!).

My favourite part was: typing in the englsih words and I liked working with my buddy.

It was really hard when: choosing the background so we can still read the words.

Something that really helped me was: My buddy and the Te Tianana poster

Something new I learned was: some of the names of the body parts in maori (like the stomach is the puku)

I can see that buddy time is something you really enjoy and you have having a big buddy to help you in your learning. You and your buddy have created a fabulous, clear poster and you have made sure to check the success criteria. I think you can sing the 'head, shoulders' song beautifully with us in class. Fabulous learning Eva!
