Painting by Kupu with Linda Munn
Saturday, December 5, 2015 - 9:30am

‘Waru’ (scrape), ‘panipani’ (smear), ‘opē’ (scoop), ‘haehae’ (scratch)

 
In this energetic workshop with artist Linda Munn, understand these action kupu (words) and others, and how they can become the starting point to express your whakapapa (ancestry) through paint.
 
Using a variety of nonconventional painting tools, you will explore acts of mark making, and work up mixed media layers on building paper to create meaning during this hands-on experience.
 
Linda Munn (Ngāpuhi , Ngāti Pūkenga , Ngāti Awa , Ngāi Tahu and Scottish, Irish and French ancestry) is a highly accomplished Tauranga-based artist and co-designer of the Tino Rangatiratanga flag (also known as the Māori flag). Her work can be viewed as part of Waitangi Wahine, exhibited at Tauranga Art Gallery 24 October – 6 December 2015.
 
This workshop is for artistic minded people of all backgrounds aged 14+ who would like to give it a go. Simply bring an understanding of where you come from, and clothes fit for painting in; everything else is provided.
Please phone 07 578 7933 to book your place.
