The kids are alright!

What a delight for Philippa and I to work with young primary school children to make an environmental sculpture at Bremner Bay, Lake Wanaka. This is our local beach where we have made many sculptures over our 18 years living in Wanaka.

There is nothing better for young people than engaging with nature and each other in a wild place and being creative. Learning from nature is what our art practice is about and passing this on to the young is very satisfying and a lot of fun.

“There is no substitute for the deep learning that unfolds through building a connection to our people and place,” said teacher Estelle Moore.

Thanks to Estelle  Moore, Jodie and Te Kura O Take Kara school for their initiative in making this happen.
