We went to the Art Gallery and looked at John Pule's style of art. We adapted his style to show what is important in our lives.
I am Aroha. I am a Maori girl. The Maori patterns in the picture show that I am from New Zealand. The heart in my picture is for my name because Aroha means 'love'. I like going to the beach to fish and collect shells. I also like going to the church and play with my church friends.
I am Dupri. I am Maori boy. I was born in New Zealand. My picture represents the mountain where I live. My picture shows Hangi because I like Hangi. The Silver Fern, the All Blacks and the rugby ball represents New Zealand.
I am Helen. I am a Samoan girl. I was born in Samoa. I wear jandals when I go to Samoa. We play rugby in Samoa. The Silver Fern represents New Zealand and the Coconut Tree represents Samoa.
My name is Cerenity. I am a Maori girl. I have my family in my picture. I was born in New Zealand and so was my family. We use spear to catch fish. The waves in my picture tell that I like going to the beach and swimming.
