Region: Wellington / Wairarapa
Art form: Visual Arts / Sculpture
Project name: Tatau Tatau
Project information: This project will create a number of significant outdoor artworks that will be displayed at the front of the college. This will be part of a larger Waharoa (gateway) project which will be completed over the next three years.
We will work as a small but inclusive group to make large-scale artworks made from natural materials as well as recycled man-made materials. The group will participate in all stages of the creative process and will meet with community groups to both exchange and test ideas. They will use a drawing and model making process to develop and refine ideas to be presented to each other and to other partners or stakeholders in the project. The students will have the opportunity to experience and develop skill in using wood, stone, flax, shell and paint alongside recycled metal to create a large work that will be publicly displayed.
Students will view and gather information about artworks in local public venues such as art galleries and local Marae and will understand what is required to make a large-scale, site-specific, permanent artwork.
Project starting: February 2021
