Outsider Art Exhibition

This year seven of our artists exhibited at the Outsider Arts Festival at the Helensville Art Centre. We chose to exhibit some of our cityscape art works. Here are some photos from the exhibition.










Abstract Mannequin Design

Nicole is our first artist to complete her abstract painted mannequin completed with fascinator. Nicole took Piet Mondrian as her artist model. This is one of his paintings below.


Nicole had fun trying out this new style of painting.


Nicole then translated what she learnt from the painting to her mannequin to produce this fabulous result.






Abstract Painting

We have been looking at a variety of artists who create abstract paintings. Each artist is taking one artist model to try and is applying some of the ideas and techniques used to create their own abstract art work. Each person is applying this artistic style to their own mannequin design and adding a fascinator or hat in the style of the abstract artist of their choice.

Winter Landscapes

Over the course of Winter we used the cold weather to inspire us to create some winter snowy landscapes. We thought about the kinds of animals and creatures that happily live in the snowy weather and incorporated these into our scenes.

InterACT Disability Art Exhibition

Last week our artists put together an exhibition for the InterACT Disability Arts Festival. We decided to showcase some of our cityscapes and new abstract paintings as well as some of the mosaic arts.



 






Art Gallery City Installation

We visited the Auckland Art Gallery and participated in the communal installation. Everyone worked with a team mate to create their own little building to contribute to the big community installation. This was lots of fun and great to be part of.
