Where the spirit does not work with the hand there is no art. (Leonardo da Vinci)
Ko te tokitope, ko te whao ngau, he tohu mauri
Ko te tātaki kawai he whakaara wairua
Ko te taumata atua, takaia ki te koroawai parirau
E hikina ai i tōna taongatanga ki te matakite, ki te rangatiratanga
(Ngā Toi i roto i te Marautanga o Aotearoa, 2000)

Teach the Teacher
WHO IS THE TEACHER NOW?
Last week some of the year 7 art
block invited their teachers to their last printmaking lesson and turned the
tables on them. The students became the teachers and the teachers the
students. Everyone had a wonderful
time learning and teaching drypoint techniques. Well done all of you.
Mr Frank shows particular
aptitude for printmaking ,
or was it amazing teaching by Heaton Students?
Mr Naidoo immortalised in print
On Friday morning
I had the opportunity to spend time in the art room under the tutorage of Cara,
Olivia, Daniela and Joe R. It was fantastic. My tutors talked me
through sketching, drypoint onto plastic and the print making process. They
were very patient and full of praise for my efforts. I look forward to my
next invitation to spend time in the art room and be the student!
