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)

Attic Art in the Attic
Congratulations to Rata for winning a prize!
It’s that time of year again... the Teece Museum and UC Classoc, with the support of Potteryworld, are pleased to present… Attic Art in the Attic! (the famous Greek pot painting art night).
The ancient Greeks sure knew a thing or two about painting vases. Want to try your hand at painting a pot, and be in to win prizes at the same time? Join us for Attic Art in the Attic, be inspired by the amazing ceramics on display in the Teece Museum, and put your creative talents to the test. You don’t have to be the next Andy Warhol (or Berlin Painter for that matter) to take part – just come ready to give it a go, and get to take home your very own potted Greek masterpiece.
$5 general public, free for current Classoc members. Refreshments will be provided.Be sure to wear some old clothes or bring an apron.
