School programme

"Eco" Art

Art from Nature

All levels, 90 minutes

Free for Porirua schools, or $2 per child per programme.

Environmental art 

We check out the work of international environmental artist Andrew Goldsworthy (UK)  inspiring students to use natural materials to create fleeting artworks 'in nature'. Students can safely make rain shadows, stone spirals and ‘paint’ with petal colours in our outdoor courtyard.

Photograph the artistic endeavours of your students (the standard practice of Goldsworthy), so nothing is taken away from the environment.
