Gallery Explorers

Welcome to the wonderful world of the Gallery – a place to explore and engage with artworks and ideas, and to create!

Through play-based activities and building on prior knowledge, ākonga will creatively and critically make meanings of, and respond to, artworks.

In the Gallery’s exhibition spaces, educators will facilitate kōrero and activities to develop ākonga’s description and interpretation of what they see, remember, feel and think when engaging with artworks.

In the Taupuni Mahi Studio, ākonga will experiment with materials, techniques and ideas to create their own artworks.
