Monster Mate!

We’ve worked very hard this term with Mrs Dollie and Mrs Tele’a so it was time to have some plain old fun drawing some Monster Mates.  We had a lot of giggles as we drew using shapes, curves and lines in Google Draw.

Our next step for this is to write a profile for our Monster Mates.

These Monster Mates have been drawn by Rowletta, a budding artist of Room 8.

We would like to wish everyone a happy holiday.  See you in term 3!

My face, it’s shape and colour


Studying our faces and the shapes we find there was the first part of our session today.   We learned about how we can create shapes, close them for colour and more.   The eyedropper tool was really helpful as it led us to selecting a colour that was close to the colour of our actual skin!   At one stage we had to change from lines to shapes as it got a little tricky for some of us.  We hope you will enjoy looking over our graphics here including a set of flowers that was the extension of this activity in google draw.

Familiar Faces

We have had a lot of fun using google draw to draw our very own faces.    A combination of curve lines, shapes and colour helped us to create these images.

Have you tried to use google draw for any other artwork?   Please leave us a comment to give us some more ideas on what we could use google draw for.

Meitaki maata!
