A Touch of Colour

Last week I went back to school!

Touch of Colour at Roseneath School, – Cook Strait News
playing with paint – Cook Strait News
It was a lot of fun and those kids had really done their homework! They knew a lot about me and my work already and asked some very intelligent and searching questions! I was really put on the spot for twenty minutes of intense questioning.

It’s so good to see them so engaged and excited about their creativity and to have the school invite us artists in to share our experiences is a special thing too. We ran out of time for me to see them finish their work but it was coming along well when we had to stop, and what an inspiring place to have a school! We went outside to get a feel of the essence of the Harbour view but it was right there in all its glory from the classroom window, simply stunning!

Thanks to Tess and the school for inviting us into their world, it was a great day!
