We will know we can do this when we can:

T2 Art Attack

We are learning to: 
·                make a tapa cloth.
·                choose a design to complete
·                follow the procedure to make it using paper, crayon, vivid markers and Indian ink.

We looked at a lot of pictures of Tapa Cloth patterns and decided to base our design on flowers.

How we did it.
First we have to crunch a piece of paper and keep on doing it until it was soft enough. Next we did a square on the paper, then we folded it to mark the middle. We had to do our design of a tree then we had to do the outside of it. We coloured some of the pieces outside with brown crayon and then we had to get a vivid and outline everything. Then we got Indian ink to do the rest of it.
