Māori art for kids by Julia Noana [Anne, Helensville Library]
This title has rocketed itself up my personal must-buy list. If you have crafty kids – or adults – and need some inspiration, then check it out.
Fifteen traditional pieces of Māori art are profiled. Each entry includes a history of the piece, a modern artist’s re-imagining, and an art or craft activity based on the piece.
Get ready for Matariki with the manu tukutuku (kite) activity. Get recycling with a kowhaiwhai container. Beach comb for supplies to make a koru. Be inspired.
