We are delighted to have acclaimed visual artist Siliga David Setoga running a special workshop for Year 9–13 students!
This programme will suit students of Visual Arts or Design.
Students will explore artist Lonnie Hutchison’s kowhaiwhai-inspired commissions for the Gallery and her cut-paper work and use this as inspiration to create their own artwork.
Students will work with drawing, paper stencils and screen printing to conceptualise, design and create a finished piece.
