Give me an A

Slowly the tile mural is coming together, the tiles are now attached to the letters. The next stage is to mosaic around the tiles, the plan was to get students to do the mosaic but we have run out of time as the year has shot by.

Aimee and I spent the first weekend of the holidays turning the tile designs into tiles. They are now drying out before Aimee fires them and then it will be on to the next stage. The plan is for the tiles to be fixed to the cut out letters and then the students will mosaic the empty spaces.

The tile project for the fence is slowly moving on and the letters have been cut, these will be the support for the tiles and each one will be hung on the fence, probably towards the school office.

Fence Artwork

The first artworks are up on the fence, there is still some more work to be done on them and the qr code, that links to the student's soundscape, will be up soon. Further artworks will go up soon to cover the rest of the front fence. The tiles are still under development and it is now planned to make a set of tiles, using the students designs, to form the word Otari and be placed on the fence near the school office, more news soon.

Otari Soundscape

Hopefully over the Easter break I shall get the first of the sculptures up on the fence, along with the sculptures there will be a QR Code that will link to the Otari Soundscape made up of sounds the students and I recorded last year. To listen click here.

Welcome back after the holidays. Plans for the year include finishing the tiles and getting the fence sculptures put in place. The plan was to get them up over the school holiday but the bad weather and a number of other factors meant that they will have to go up in the next couple of weeks, weather permitting.

Marble Run

We got the marble run pieces for the first time this term as at last we have been having some nice weather.
