This is the second Art Exhibition to be celebrated by this cluster group of local schools of Ahititi, Home School, Mokau, and Whareorino (Waikawau) in the Tainui area. This group holds various events together and meets regularly. This year’s theme for their exhibition is ‘Taonga’.
Nine Ahititi School children have all worked with an image of a Tiki. The children have used a variety of printing techniques to produce their version. This includes collagraphy which involves gluing, or collaging, pieces of card onto paper giving the Tiki its shape. These have then been screen printed to bring in the vibrant and vivid colouring.
Home Education in the Tainui area.
We have a variety of techniques that have been used by this wee group of homeschooled children including painting directly onto canvas, and a first attempt at using Dad’s lathe to create a board with the words “Family is a Blessing”.
Mokau School have created their items sharing their ideas of taonga in a multi-media format. All seven items have been carefully thought out and then placed and glued onto a painted canvas.
Ten Whareorino School students took a photograph and wrote a brief description of what that treasure is and why it is so special to them. Here we have Indi, Lily, and Izzy Single pointing to their photos in the gallery.
Do pop into the Gallery and check out these budding artists’ works!
