Super Eight Visual Art Professional Development
The Palmerston North Boys’ High School Art Department hosted The Super Eight Visual Art PD over the past two days. Art teachers from New Plymouth, Hastings, Napier, and Hamilton joined us for two days of curriculum discussion and a printmaking workshop.
A thank you must go to Keith Dobson from Awatapu College and Jamieson Hudson from Hamilton Boys’ High School, for leading discussions around the new Level 1 Visual Arts curriculum. A special thank you to Tanu Aumua from Manukura who shared his knowledge of integrating mātauranga Māori into the culture of our classrooms.
Finally, thank you to Kate Symmans and Andrew Glennie from Gordon Harris for leading a practical workshop in Printmaking, where Gelli Plates, collage, and paint pens were used to create small experimental artworks.
