We have been exploring the art of paper collage, an art technique that is created by using different pieces of paper that are assembled to create a mural. Using the story of How Maui Slowed the Sun we will work together to create a collage of Te Ra (the sun).
|The blank canvas that helped to set the background for our mural.|
|We worked together to prepare the paper for our collage.|
Some children painted while others had to tear the paper into
small pieces which is part of the collage process.
|Next some children began to lightly spread some glue onto the torn pieces|
of paper and began to place them in their desired places.
|Finally we completed our collage mural which now sits magnificently above us all so we can be reminded of how we worked together to create our spectacular interpretation of the character Te Ra from the tale of Maui.|
