Let’s have some wild and crazy fun with irregular patterns! Miss Linda uses the Maori koru as inspiration for this week’s lesson, showing you how to combine 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional techniques to make one cool piece of nature-inspired artwork.

Miss Linda’s example of her koru inspired artwork is below or go to the Supplemental Materials page.

More information about Maori koru, and a picture of the fern, can be found at https://teara.govt.nz/en/photograph/2422/the-koru.

Please make sure you have these supplies:

  • A pencil

  • Scissors
  • White glue

Your optional materials are:

Practice, practice, practice!\
