Playful Perspectives of NZ Nature

With Jean Stewart

Weekly on Wednesday, 4:00 - 5:30PM
From 1 Nov - 6 Dec

Children: 8 - 14

Inspired by the colours and perspectives in the bush paintings of Australian artist William Robinson, we will use oil paints to make our own playful versions of NZ nature. We will look at how he changes the usual perspective of a scene and layer up our paintings to create bush artworks that are half imagined, half real. Learn to work with oil paints in this fun programme.
