“All of us were born creative. Imagination is trained through the arts and it allows us to imagine better futures.”
Professor Peter O’Connor, Director – Centre for Arts and Social Transformation, University of Auckland
The Arts in Schools Programme has been designed to give primary school students a chance to be involved in the visual arts by learning a creative practice under the tuition of a professional local artist.
Across the course of a week, students received 10 hours of tuition within their preferred art medium of either painting, printmaking, photography or sculpture. An opportunity for creative and critical thinking to flourish!
We would like to acknowledge all the talented, local artists involved for their hard work and dedication to the programme:
Kym Beaton – Painting
Lisa Duncan – Painting
Patrick Fallon – Photography
Fiona Garlick – Sculpture
Liz Hawker – Printmaking
Sue Marshall – Printmaking
Tony O’Keefe – Sculpture
Marion Vialade – Printmaking
Grant Whibley – Painting
To date, the Arts In Schools programme has been delivered to 700 students across the Queenstown Lakes District. Alongside our other projects, the Trust remains committed to further developing the Arts in School initiative so that in time, it will be accessible to all schools in the District.
