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 using the indian ink in my art because it made me relaxed and calm. I enjoyed the process of drawing the symbols and patterns on my final artwork because all the noise and confusion just leaves my brain because I am focusing so HARD!

I found  it tricky to keep a steady hand when was indian inking the details in my art because I had very  tiny drawings and very tiny patterns.

Next time I will try and make sure that my symbols are more easy to spot.  Next time I will try to draw proper patterns instead of just drawing pictures.
