Māpura Visual Arts Online Term 3 2022

About the Course:

Thursdays 1.30 - 3.00pm
July 28th - September 29th
(10 weeks)

CLASS FULL

We welcome the artist, whanau and support people to the Māpura Visual Arts programme.

Māpura Studios has designed this course to embrace creative adventure. We will learn to express ourselves with drawing, painting and sculpture. We are open to weave in other visual art forms such as costume, performance and photography. 

Each group will develop its own identity as it adapts to online delivery. We will learn the possibilities of the digital platform, such as collaborative whiteboard drawing and the filming of short clips of our mahi.

We will send a full Studio Art Kit out to each artist and, as the course evolves, a list of easily accessible materials to be sourced at home. Materials such as packaging waste, recycled materials and natural items sourced from the garden such as twigs, rocks and earth. 

Everyone is welcome on this journey, come to tutu and experiment, and to meet the creative world the artist in your group has been invited to.

Sessions

 The creative direction of the group will be influenced by ideas as they arise in the session: so the programme will be designed week by week after the first few sessions. This makes the programme living and responsive to the discoveries made by the group in each session. Formal art properties will continue to anchor each session. The tutor will post a plan for the following week after each session.

 There will be independent study to further explore the ideas covered in the session, and to share with everyone when we next meet.
