Creative Project: What is a Still Life?
Create a still life photograph from objects around the house and then join our Beyond the Bubble Still life photography project!
Creative Project: The Great Still Life Treasure Hunt
This still life treasure hunt has been designed to help you gather objects together to create an interesting still life arrangement. It is designed to find treasures in your own home.
The treasure hunt can be done on its own or just for fun. It can also be used to create a still life photograph for the Tauranga Art Gallery’s Beyond the Bubble Still Life Project photography challenge.

At Home Art Materials - You don’t need fancy art materials to be creative!
Using everyday materials from around your home is a great way to recycle and create something fun, interesting and unique! We have ideas for materials that could be used for drawing, painting and making sculptures.
Designed for children aged 7 years and older, explore using a variety of materials to construct mobiles. This activity is inspired by Israel Randell's artwork Wahi Ngaro which was the Miles Supreme Award winner of the Miles Art Awards 2020.
