Description: Every Friday we have been focusing on production. We went through a series of "tasters" which means we went through workshops with Troy, Rebecca and Kate/Elly. There were 3 themes.
Troy: Elements
Rebecca: Heroes and Villains 
Kate: Out of Africa 
I'm in Kate's, which is out of Africa. After we got into our groups we created our very own mood board.  We incorperated the designs, fabric, colours, animals and cultural items about Africa. This is mine!

Big idea: I have decided to be an Africa Elephant sunset ( if that makes sence ) it will be and elephant with the colours of a sunset. I am planning on making the elephant out of cardboard and painting it to look like a sunset. I wear it like a bag with to holes for my arms to fit through. This is my progress

... And the back!

1) The materials that I used to create my garment were: Cardboard, Paint ( acrylic, face, water based paints ) buttons, ribbons and a rubber band ( using staples, strong woody cardboard and masking tape to hold it together )

2) The most challenging thing about production for me was: Getting the really flimsy cardboard to a more strong structure.

3) One way I demonstrated a growth mindset during production was: Holding it together. It was really flimsy at the time and I was worried it might not work!

4) Something I am really proud of about production was: The paint mixture. The paint really soaks up the word Africa! It's blended in awesomely and it really looks good from far away.

5) Our school vision is to create agency, creativity and excellence! I showed this by: Creating something out of this world! I mean seriously, you don't see people making a sunset elephant mad out of cardboard do you? The answer for that is NO! My idea is original ( until it looks to similar to my sisters class who are making cardboard dinosaurs like mine but not a Dino! That's sort of where my idea grew from )

  1. It would be great to see some of the in progress photos as well as the finished garment on here Olivia. You have used your vision and ideas really successfully to create a finished piece of art. I hope you are proud of what you have produced and enjoy showing it off on stage next week.
