Art form: Visual Arts, Community Arts
Project name: Carterton School Art & Mural Workshops
Creative name: Adrian Jackman
Outcomes for students and ākonga: Students participated in a collaborative art making project that allowed them to engage and see potential in the arts. They explored art-making conventions such as mono printing, colour mixing, and silhouettes using shapes and patterns where they applied elements and selected principles through the use of materials and processes.
Outcomes for teachers and kaiako: Teachers took part in professional development with the artist at the start of the project and then participated in the workshops with students. Some teachers went on to incorporate the techniques they had learned in classroom art lessons.
Outcomes for creatives: The creative enjoyed sharing her knowledge and skills and acknowledged the growing confidence of students reflected in their final murals.
Outcomes for parents and whānau: Although there were limited opportunities for parents and whānau to participate due to Covid, a group helped refine the final murals and the artworks were displayed at the local art gallery.
