Matariki Art by Ashley Maree.
Shared by Anna Maria van Riel Here’s a song I wrote, sung by the gorgeous wee Tasmin. The intention was to create a storyline that connects children with their elders and of course, with Matariki. You can find the lyric video on my YouTube if you’d like to teach it to your tamariki.
Thank you to Melinda Narayan for agreeing to share these super monsters her class did. The outlines are black paint mixed with PVA glue, whilst the colours are all oil pastels.

A play based on a Tongan legend.
Thanks to Tim Faville for sharing the prompts he used with the class, some of their planning and of course the final results!This artwork can be recreated with chalk, crayons and dye. Simply chalk the areas where you would like the dye to saturate and crayon everywhere else!

I mixed PVA glue and water 50/50. Poured into little cups. Added acrylic paint then had kids pour each little cup of paint onto canvas. Tip it and voila! Bit messy so did it in small groups. Other kids worked through math pages and reading writing activities to keep them busy. Credit: Geraldine Yaworski
