Education Programme

Perpetual Guardian Sculpture on the Gulf’s Education Programme will be back in March 2019 with a range of fully accessible, interactive and stimulating resources to engage families and schools. Our aim is to encourage children and young people to be immersed in exploring the artistic, conceptual and aesthetic components of sculpture within an iconic Waiheke setting.

This years Perpetual Guardian Sculpture on the Gulf is committed to providing educational resources that prompt and provoke creative perspectives. By encouraging our young visitors to think like artists, we hope to expand their interpretation of visual experiences and offer them the opportunity to explore the dynamic realm of contemporary New Zealand sculpture.

Our Education Programme aims to engage the Waiheke community, exhibition visitors and Auckland-based school students in conversations and activities about sculpture.





The programme will consist of artist talks, public workshops and activities, as well as educational resources and worksheets for visiting schools  to engage with on the walkway.
