About the event
Welcome to the first School Holiday Art Sessions for 2023!
Come and explore the fun art of collage with local Lawrence artist Jan Harper
Jan works in the mediums of Sculpture, Collage and Photography and Exhibition Design. You can see some of Jan's Work at the local Tuapeka Vintage Club, and the Tuapeka Goldfields Museum.
Jan will be joined by Community Arts Facilitator Rachel Taylor. Rachel holds a Masters in Fine Arts Degree and is a practicing artist. Rachel has developed Children's Arts Programmes for Otago Museum and Central Stories Museum and Art Gallery in Alexandra.
In this project we will be creating our own special boxes using the art of collage to create personalised themes. All materials are provided but please bring any pictures/decorated papers or embellishments that you may be saving.
Donations of magazines, scrap booking / embellishments, old art calendar's etc. are very welcome
Also we are looking for donations of interesting small sturdy boxes that could be up-cycled.
Some ideas for themed Treasure Boxes could be:
Steampunk Boxes, Holiday Beach Treasures, Animal Kingdoms, Family Memories, A box of Dreams and Wishes, Flowers and Fairies, Under the Sea-Mermaids and Serpents, Star Wars , under the night sky....It's totally up to you!
