R 26's Tūrangawaewae Art inspired by NZ artist Nigel Brown

Like all the other Year 7 Classes, Room 26 have been working on a mini art PBL where we explored & developed ideas, learnt about composition, colour, tone & how to use oil pastels effectively. We used the art of New Zealander, Nigel Brown to inspire us. The parts we found most challenging to do were composition and tone.
