Our Learning Programmes
I am an Artist – Term 4
The school has an exciting term ahead as we launch into our much anticipated topic ‘I am an Artist’. We have commenced the term with a variety of workshops based around technical elements such as composition, line, colour and texture. Throughout the term the students will explore a range of themes and ideas through mediums such as painting, printmaking, collage and sculpture.
We are very fortunate to have our Artist in Residence, Professor Colin Gibbs with us this term to enable us to ‘think in the mind of’ and ‘walk in the shoes of’ an artist. Colin will be based at our school working on a composition, sharing his creative skills and knowledge with our learners. The Junior and Middle Schools are looking forward to exploring the Pah Homestead, TSB Bank Wallace Arts Centre where children will have an opportunity to view and discuss the artworks in the gallery. We are excited about sharing our creative pieces with our friends and whānau in our famous ENPS Art Exhibition on Tuesday 8th December 2015. This will be the highlight of the year for our learners and school community.
The school values for this term are Courage and Optimism. These values are embedded in our everyday teaching and learning at ENPS and we are looking forward to exploring them in more depth throughout the term.
