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 elping 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

My favourite part was: making my bat wings and mask and getting all messy because it is just like getting all muddy in the grass.

It was really hard when: to do the making with my broken collarbone but I still did my plan.

Something that really helped me was: my mum helped me make my bat wings at home an my mask at school.

Something new I learned was: what bats and some of the creatures looked like.

Kerri Thinks
You thought hard about bats and their wings and with support came up with some designs to use in the making part. What a great job of the making, using your plan, you did even though you had a broken collar bone. It was great to see you sharing your learning with your mum, thanks mum!
