Use traffic lights eg. G, O R

(my assessment)

  • have at least 45 boxes in my art

  • Include the number 50 (for Elm Park Birthday celebrations) and my initials.

  • Make sure my patterns were clear and easily identifiable eg. pasifika, maori, asian etc (I did not just draw pictures because these are not patterns)

  • Mix my symbols and pattern boxes around so that my symbols stood out.

  • Use thin lines and thick lines on my John Pule Art

I really enjoyed this because I loved drawing all the symbols throughout the year and patterns like John Pule.  

The part I found tricky was when I was inking my art because I keep smudging it and the ink kept on dripping on my art.  And I also the symbols were hard because we had to do symbol about our journey out through the year.

Next time I will be more careful with the indian ink when I do my art.
