 Creative Kete: Reimagining the Landscape

Our debut Creative Kete Video Workshop explores the space between realist and abstract painting by examining three contemporary NZ landscape painters; John Pule, Barbara Tuck and Krystie Wade.

Broken down in a straightforward way, this workshop provides an accessible and surprising route into landscape painting.

Presented via video by our Senior Arts Educator Jean Stewart, students will learn how to make decisions about their painting as it evolves - rather than having an initial plan to follow or something to copy.

Creative Kete Workshops are delivered in three steps with this one moving through basic colour theory to mark-making, and finally concept and composition. Students will create an original artwork through this process while developing decision-making skills and learning that painting can be a conversation between the painter and the paint.

Class Format: 3 parts with paint drying time between each step. (You can choose whether to run the workshop over one full day with morning tea and lunchtime breaks / or over successive days with three different lessons).


Primary and Intermediate: YNE - Y8
