Draw six „thumbnail‟ ideas using images and ideas related to yourself, your interests, your cultural patterns, design your whanau symbols i.e.. Miro plant, Hinau plant, Tawa plant or Kowhai plant. • DEVELOPMENT: make two compositional ideas on an A3 page. Explore use of line to create texture and pattern as seen in artists works studied. Show your use of colour ( make a colour plan using 3-4 colours on one of the development works) and media • REFINEMENT: Discuss in small groups how to improve best ideas 5-10 minutes. Transfer your chosen image to Ply. • FINAL: Use a variety of media to work into your section of the installation

Fatu Feu’u is a senior artist acknowledged as both a leader and mentor within the Pacific artscommunity in New Zealand. Feu’u grew up in the village of Poutasi in Western Samoa andimmigrated to New Zealand in 1966 at the age of 20. He has been an exhibiting artist since theearly 1980s and became a full-time artist in 1988.Fatu is a multi-media artist and while primarily a painter, he explores a range of other mediumsincluding bronze, wood and stone sculpture, pottery design, lithographs, woodcuts and glassworks (both stained and etched). Fatu gains inspiration from Polynesian art forms such as siapo(bark cloth), tatau (tattooing), weaving, carving and ceremonial mask making. In these forms hehas discovered a rich lexicon of motifs and compositional structures. Fatus works frequently blendtraditional and contemporary elements, incorporating a range of influences, inspirations,techniques and motifs from Samoa and Aotearoa and more generally from Euro-American toPacific cultures.

Michel Tuffery is an acclaimed printmaker, painter and sculptor, who is constantly exploring,collaborating and innovating.A New Zealand based artist of Samoan, Rarotongan and Tahitian heritage, Tuffery likens therole of the artist to that of a journalist – asking questions, investigating and telling storiesfrom fresh perspectives. For Tuffery, art is his first language. It’s the way he communicates hisideas on the world around him; his cultural heritage and the diverse cultural fabric thatmakes up New Zealand; and the changing nature of life in the Pacific region.“ Tuffery’s journey is an open and expansive one, its wonder and revelations sharedgenerously, as a gift, in his art. It illuminates the sea around him, showing us aspects of ourworld, our society and our lives that would otherwise remain unseen. ”Tim Walker, Director, TheNewDowse, New Zealand

Principles: Contrast,balance, rhythm and harmony
BALANCE There are three main kinds of visual balance:Radial formal (or symmetrical) informal (or asymmetrical)
HARMONY & CONTRASTA harmonious design is one in which its different elements are in unity with each other Contrast, the opposite quality to harmony, involves the use of opposing elements, such as clashing colours and shapes, in the same design.
PATTERN AND RHYTHM A repeated design element. Rhythm is related to pattern in that it uses repeating elementsM C Escher - Vogels Marimekko - Hevoskastanja
