What’s a Koru? Ask a Georgetown second grade artist! They will explain that a Koru is a New Zealand Maori word that means “loop”. A koru looks like a fern frond or a spiral, and to the New Zealand Maori people the koru represents life, growth, strength, and peace.
Second grade artists drew these beautiful korus with a marker and finished them with carefully blended oil pastels.
Special thanks to the fourth graders at Alum Creek Elementary School in Ohio for this project inspiration!
