May is New Zealand Music Month

This week we explored cut paper artworks using the theme "May is New Zealand Music Month".

Follow the link to learn more about this promotion for New Zealand music.

There are many famous artists who have created wonderful artworks from cut paper. One of these was a French artist called Henri Matisse.


         

Our cut paper artworks had to have a 3-dimensional aspect to them.  To achieve this we created curvatures through our cut out hands, making them look as though they were playing their instruments. Some artists even tried to show key chords.

  2. I really love your art work Ruma Tahi. NZ Music Month is a significant event for you to acknowledge. I read the other day that it was set up many years ago to try and promote a very unappreciated music scene in NZ, and it has been one of our most successful promotional events. I suppose Lorde is a good example of this.

  3. I love your art work! Well done, Ruma Tahi. NZ Music Month is a significant event for you to acknowledge. I read recently that it was first set up to promote a very under-appreciated music industry in NZ. It has proved to be highly successful because NZ music now has international acclaim. Lorde is a good example.

    Kai Pai This Artwork is amazing. I can tell you have put a lot of effort into this. I love all of them especially how you took it that extra mile by making the hands and music notes. I love the different colours and instruments. How long did they take to make? What was the best and worst part of making them? It would be cool to see them made in a different material.

    Well Done

  5. Guten tag! I like the way you bent the hands to create a 3D effect. I would like to know where you got the inspiration for your artwork from. I can clearly see that you know how to use cut paper to create a stunning piece of 3D artwork. I wonder what your artwork would look like if the colour of the background didn’t match the colour of the hand or musical instrument?

  8. Hello Ruma Tahi Those music pictures are amazing I hope my school does something like that one day. They look quite hard I like challenging things. I think that your pictures would look even better if you framed them.

  13. Guten tag Ruma Tahi! That looks absolutely outstanding but I would like to know where you got all those ideas? The 3D hands were amazing. How did you do that? It looked cool especially seeing that you went on a bit further to make the music notes to go with the
    instruments. How long did they take to make? It looked easy when you see the picture. Was it easy, hard or both?

  15. Hello Ruma Tahi
    The artwork you did looks awesome,the way you bent the hands to give it the 3D effect makes it really stand out. I really like the way you used lots of different colored paper to make it colourful and stand out. The way you added in glasses and music notes really showed that you went the extra mile and put in a lot of effect. Well done.

  17. Hello Ruma Tahi. My name is Kaylee and I am from St Patrick's school. I loved your artwork. It was really cool. I don’t think I could make one as good as that. Next time maybe if you make some more you could have more pictures here like a step by step with pictures but that is up to you.

    I like the way you have lots of colours on the paper pictures with guitars, they look cool and pretty.I have a question - What did you think of making this art? Did you have fun making it or was it hard? I wonder if your hands got tired?

  19. Kia ora room Ruma Tahi im Rem from st patrick's . I really enjoyed checking out your pictures for music month they all look so cool. It really showed me how many diffrent things you can do with paper particularly making pictures. Next time you might want to try to use contrast colours because it will make the pictures pop and stand out.

  21. Hello, I am Sovia from Saint Patrick's. I Just want to say Wow! You all did a tremendous work exploring the world of arts and crafts, everyone looks like they all did an outstanding job and you were all thinking outside the box. All of your art look 3D is so amazing. I myself think you should enter an art competition, keep it up.

  25. Ruma-tahi!

    I really like the hard detail you have put into them.
    One thing you should try for some of them is putting
    left or right hand on.
