Govett Brewster – Len Lye Art Gallery Excursion

Tēnā koutou, what a fabulous ako experience we all had on our visit to Govett-Brewster Len Lye Art Gallery. We explored making shadow puppets out of recycled materials in the Gallery classroom. After exploring exhibits of Len Lye and other artists. Our focus was looking at movement, materials and the impressions and feelings these evoked within us. We practiced story telling through looking at picture images and moving our bodies to the rhythm of the sculptures. Then we produced our very own shadow puppetry show from the puppets that we created. The aim was to draw attention to sustainability and send a message to look after our oceans and to protect our environment from discarded plastics and other rubbish.

Before returning to Kindergarten on the Number 6 city council bus we visited Puke Ariki library. To enjoy more activities and to listen to stories. What a wonderful thought provoking adventure we all had. A big thank you to our wonderful whānau helpers for your support.
