Stuff Article about colour - children using colour here at Inverlochy

Have a look at this very interesting article about colour by Stuff Journalist Jessica Long with video shot by Rosa Woods.

Inverlochy was used as the backdrop for the article illustrating how we as children are taught colour theory at primary school. Professor Neil Dodgson explains colour while children, in our Children's Holiday Programme, are making art using colourful cellophane  and paint.

Judging  by the number of comments to the article there is a lot of interest, differing ideas and understanding regarding colour theory. This article deals with the technical while art schools deal with both technical and the aesthetic understanding of colour, beginning art classes when young gives an aspiring artist a great start.

The Children's Holiday Programme runs for each week of the primary school holidays in April, July and October each year. Our popular programme has been running since the 1990's and, due to popular demand, we have since added a Teen's Class to the programme.

The Imperfect Pull - New Prints by Noa Noa Bassewitz

The Imperfect Pull - New Prints by Noa Noa Bassewitz

On a warm spring evening the  of Noa Noa's print exhibition here at Inverlochy, in Wellington, was a convivial and exciting place to be. Noa Noa's exhibition explores themes, Rona, the Maori mythical woman in the moon and the vagaries of printmaking and life in general, hence the term the imperfect pull; from Noa Noa's own website:

The Imperfect Pull wood-block print series is based on the Maori myth of Rona and the Moon. Female forms and mystical creatures cavort in the moonlight. There is yearning, there is movement, there is unease and there is loving connection. Come and discover your own inner animal. Be drawn in but don’t let the moon steal you away!
The exhibition is open until 24 September, 9.30 am - 5pm daily. Limited edition prints and T-shirts are available.
