Te Tuhi Trip

This morning we had a great experience at the Te Tuhi art gallery in Pakuranga. The reason why we went there was because our theme Is “Art Attack”. As we arrived to the Te Tuhi art gallery  Jeremy was our instructor just for the morning. Jeremy showed us a few things about the art on the walls before he introduced his friend “Luisa”.

We had time to ask him questions during the first block of time when we were in the art room. When were looking and feeling the examples of tapa designs he asked us what it does it feel like to me, everyone on our table said”It felt like nam bread”.

Step by step Jeremy had told us to draw 4 things thats got to do with family, interest, home and culture. For my interest I drawn a rugby ball but it looked like a football. There were many ideas about culture but I had to choose 1, It was the mana flag. It was pretty hard to focus on Jeremy

It was that time we were finishing off the last block. We looked at water and dams, did you know New Zealand can hold heaps of water with any old dam. Jeremy took us back near the Te Tuhi center on the ground. We all said our thank you’s and goodbyes as we walked out of entrance.
