Beat of the Drum celebrates the learning, the creating and the sharing that we do in music and dance.

This week the senior classes used 18th and 19th Century paintings of NZ landscapes to inspire their creative dance. Part 1 was to work in a group to recreate the landscape painting. Each group needed a foreground, mid and background. Individually they used air and floor pathways to paint four of the features from their painting. They finished with their recreating shape. Can you spot what painting each group had? How did they do things differently or the same as your group? What did you find hard about your own dance? If you did your dance again what would you do differently?
