In the Garden

In the Garden

10 November – 27 November 2011

This exhibition features artwork produced by students from fifteen Wanganui Schools. Each class visited the gallery to participate in a practical workshop with the Sarjeant Gallery education officers. Looking at the theme of In the Garden, each of the workshops involved the students viewing works depicting the garden and/or bugs from the Gallery’s collection. The examples included printmaking, drawing, painting and photography. Using these works as inspiration the children then produced their own garden themed artwork. Each class explored the theme using different mediums such as screen prints, sculpture, printmaking, painting, tissue, collage, photography, silhouettes, crayon and dye.

Gardens have a constant presence in our lives whether they are our gardens at home, those we walk past or the parks we visit. We hope you enjoy this bright and colourful collection of children’s art.
