Join us in celebrating International Sculpture Day 2018 and recognising the talented sculptors based at Corban Estate Arts Centre. Families are invited to delve into the fabulous world of sculpture through 2 workshops and studio tours with our acclaimed onsite sculptors— Anton Parsons, David McCracken, Kevin Osmond, Martin Selman, Nate Savill, Julie Moselen, Chris van Doren and Stephen Woodward. Places are limited so book now!

We’re celebrating International Sculpture Day 2018 with some great hands-on workshops and inspiring guided studio tours.

At Corban Estate Arts Centre, we’re lucky enough to connect with some very talented artists; either working in studios onsite, or tutoring in our education programme.

We thought International Sculpture Day was the perfect opportunity to celebrate these sculptors and the incredible works they create.

So join us for a day of 3D inspiration, Saturday 28th April, 10am – 2pm

Assemblage Art Workshop (1hr)

with Andrew Hall           

$10 per child

10am – 11am 

Andrew Hall is a firm favourite at Corban Estate Arts Centre and a well-known figure around West Auckland. His ‘spontaneous multidimensional assemblage” are sculptures he makes out of recycled materials.

In this workshop, children will get to explore the mass of recycled materials Andrew provides to create a piece of ‘junk art’. They will learn ways to join things together using cable ties, screws, glue, string and masking tape. Can you see a face in a can opener? An animal in a bottle or a robot in a VHS tape? Sculptural creations are only limited by your imagination!

“There’s a force driving me,” he says. “I work spontaneously and I’m never 100 per cent sure what’s going to happen. My work is comedy horror. It’s shocking and funny. A lot of the stuff is twisted and hideous but it’s got a funny sort of edge to it. I like making things out of proportion and non- symmetrical, like a long arm with a big hand, or one short arm or three or four arms. I start off with an idea, which changes as I go. The original idea can be completely changed by the time I’ve finished.” (Andrew Hall, Oct 2014, Arts Access Aotearoa)

 

10.15am – 11am Guided Studio Tour

Making Molecular Sculptures (1hr)

With Rangimarie McDowell

$10 per child

11.30am – 12.30pm

 

Art and Science combine to create sculptural forms in this workshop that explores the structure of molecules in the form of crystals. Using found natural objects such as feathers and leaves, participants will learn how to grow crystals and read microscopic molecules found in nature. We will use drawing to recreate what we are seeing through the microscope as we wait for our beautiful sculptures to crystallize. Rangimarie’s arts practice uses the essence of Māori Cosmology to connect to Tikanga Māori. Join her in this workshop andexplore how we are created and how we grow - be inspired, share and enjoy a visual conversation around cosmology and the science of nature.

11.45am – 12pm Guided Studio Tour

Be inspired as we visit our resident sculptors; Nate Savill, Julie Moselen/Stephen Woodward, Martin Selman, Kevin Osmond, Chris van Doren, Anton Parsons and David McCracken
