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
We made a castle with a tall tower... what a team!

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

My favourite part was: going on stage and showing everyone my glow worm wearable art.

It was really hard when: sticking the tinfoil onto the lids because it was hard making it stay on and it kept falling off. 

Something that really helped me was: my plan because it had all the things that I needed to make my garment written on it.

Something new I learned was: our flying dance.

Kerri Thinks
You looked closely at the images of the glow worms noticing the blue colour and planned your design to match. That tinfoil was difficult to make stick but you kept at it showing great perserverance. I am pleased you enjoyed showing your creation to the audience, you put in a lot of hard work and it is great to share!
