Art Week

Room 2's local environment focus for Art  Week was mainly based on one of the reefs off the coast of Patea.  We were lucky enough to have Karen and Rebecca from Project Reef Life come in and show us some videos of the actual reef and photos taken from their in-situ camera of all the amazing creatures and life that can be seen there.  We learned that the rocks of the reef are covered with lots of fantastic colours.  We had great fun reproducing this on our own "rocks" with splashes, splotches and drips of paint.
