Look closely at the work of two Māori artists whose work is full of repeating patterns then create an artwork using two different techniques. Students begin by making an observational drawing of the patterns and motifs on Michael Parekōwhai’s beautiful carved piano, then add their own design by cutting a stencil and screenprinting a pattern inspired by work by Para Matchitt. Along the way we’ll discuss paintings, films and sculptures that represent different aspects of our nation.
