This workshop will draw inspiration from the fantastic insect world. The children will invent their personal insect, assembling different parts (wings, eyes, legs, horns, exoskeleton) to invent an imaginary fantastic insect.
In this interactive workshop we will use a variety of techniques, mediums, materials and found objects to explore the sights, sound and textures of dramatic stormy weather and the beauty of rainbow that follows.
I feel the earth move under my feet. I feel the sky tumbling down. In reality, there are patches of plastic existing as giant islands of floating garbage called microplastics travelling around in our ocean. We invite all junior engineers to join our recycling plan to create a recycling island.
Let's create a magical galaxy or a nebula with watercolour. Learn modern watercolour techniques while you paint your hypnotising galaxy. Add a shooting star or a constellation or maybe a rocket. You will learn techniques like painting wet on wet, using transparencies, gradients, salt effects and more.
The wind is a great resource we have in Aotearoa. It is reusable energy that doesn't bring too much pollution when generating power. In my travelling time, I once found a chocolate and cocoa factory, using wind energy from the windmill. Today, we explore the possibility of enhancing our art or sculpture by the wind. Wouldn't it be nice to see your drawing fly high?
Let's explore the magic of watercolour while we create a beautiful fairy. In this workshop we will learn to create transparent layering, paint wet on wet, wet on dry, gradients, pulse and precision and lots more. What dress will your fairy wear? What will be the colour of her wings? Watch your fairy come to life in this fun class.
Seventy per cent of the Earth’s surface is below the ocean. Yet 95 per cent of it remains unexplored to the human eye. Bring on your imagination! Perhaps we could create a submarine to explore the mystery together? My dolphin friends will lead me the way. Look, there is a whale shark!
