Visit the school of Art & Nature

For the Sculpture on the Gulf’s 2024 Learning Programme we will be offering a range of accessible, interactive, and stimulating resources to engage families, schools, and communities. The purpose of this programme is to encourage our visitors, particularly children and young people, to be immersed in exploring the conceptual, creative, and aesthetic components of sculpture within an iconic Waiheke setting.

Our Learning programme is committed to providing resources and experiences that prompt and provoke creative perspectives. By encouraging our young visitors to think like artists, our objective is to expand their understanding of art and offer them the opportunity to explore the dynamic realm of contemporary Aotearoa New Zealand sculpture.

Our broader Learning Programme aims to engage the Waiheke community, exhibition visitors and Auckland-based intermediate and high school students in conversations and activities surrounding sculpture. This will be actioned through various approaches such as artist talks, public workshops, family activities and a curriculum focused learning kit containing a pre-visit slideshow and a comprehensive and engaging worksheet for our visiting students.
