Photo: ROSEMARY McLENNAN Images painted on cloth to represent Kiwiana and every student at Fergusson Intermediate will be sent to Japan to become part of the Biggest painting in the world 2012 . The school is one of five, and the only one in the Wellington region, taking part in the Japan-based, non-profit organis- ation Earth Identity Project. Cloths six metres long and 1m wide were distributed to more than 60 embass- ies, including New Zealand s in Tokyo, for distribution throughout the world. Cloth is also being distributed around Japan for children to paint. The project aims to foster awareness of the environment, art and culture and world peace. The cloths will be sent to Japan soon and next year sewn together to make a large painting which will be compressed and put in a time capsule as a gift to future generations of children. The Asia:New Zealand Foundation emailed its networks to ask schools if they were interested. Thirty replied and five were randomly chosen and sent lengths of cloth. They were Fergusson, Rosebank Primary School (Balclutha), Burnside Primary School (Christchurch), Mount Maunganui Intermediate and Windy Ridge School (Auckland). At Fergusson art teacher Karin Jones put the message out asking for volunteers to help and come up with ideas. The 21 volunteers then voted and five ideas formed the theme that included the school logo, tuatara, kiwi, handprints and jandals. Every student and staff member put their thumbprint around the edge and the volunteers drew the outline of a per- son around it. Each volunteer added their handprint to the design, described as Kiwiana with- out the L&P or tomato sauce. The students began the project half way through term two and have spent many hours on it. Most of the school had seen it and the reaction had been good, the volunteers said. To know more go to earth-identity- project.com/web/eng
