Great blog! Did you know that my family live in Rarotonga...my Nana and Mum were born there but I was born in New Zealand. When I go at the end of the year I will look for dinosaurs...

Very impressed with your movies and your artwork. You must be very proud of yourselves. Look forward to showing the children at Manaia Kindergarten your work. Will keep checking your blog to see what new artwork you are up to.

Hi everyone!
Manea loved the dinosaur story. She has been to Rarotonga once and is going again at Christmas time. Maybe she will see the Dinosaur Family on their travels!

Fale screen prints term 2 2008

As you scroll through these screen prints if you look carefully you can find elements of the Samoan fale the high curved roof to allow air to circulate and create a cool atmosphere, the posts holding the roof up, and if you're lucky you might spot a raised floor here and there.

Keep your eye open for some roofs decorated with tropical flowers too.

These screen prints were created by children age 2, 3, and 4.



The screen prints were created by making stencils out of observational drawings of small wooden fales.

Most of the children chose to do two layers of paint - sometime registering the stencils perfectly, sometimes choosing deliberately not to.

The art works were finished with adding details in black, silver or gold pens. They look great in real life!
