Ngā toi Māori: Korowai of Learning
5 August to 11 Feb
History/ Toi Māori/ Visual Art
Y3 – 8. 90 mins
Bring your students kanohi ki te kanohi with toi Māori. Every Māori artist in the Govett-Brewster Collection is represented in the Te Hau Whakatonu | A Series of Never-Ending Beginnings. This a wonderful opportunity to experience a huge range of styles and media and bring matauranga Māori into your classroom through art.
In this programme, we gather ideas linked to whakairo, poi and raranga and create class korowai to show our learning. Junior students focus on personal history and symbols, senior students delve into Taranaki history including Parihaka, conflict and peace.
Share with students some artworks featuring in the exhibition:
Ngaahina Hohaia's Poi artwork Roimata Toroa
Para Matchitt's Whakapapa-IV
WharehokaSmith's Kureitanga II IV
Lisa Reihana’s Hinepukohurangi
