'From The Peninsula 2019' showcase of student art workFrom The Peninsula 2019 at the Lake House Arts Centre will showcase the art work of 10 schools from the Devonport Peninsula from year 1 to year 13. The participating schools are:
Takapuna Grammar • Belmont Intermediate • Devonport Primary • Belmont Primary • Vauxhall Primary • Hauraki School • Wilson School • Bayswater School • Stanley Bay School • St Leo's Catholic School.
Seven of the schools participating in this show belong to the Devonport Kāhui Ako or Community of Learning. A Kāhui Ako is a group of schools which work together to help students achieve their full potential. It sets shared goals, or achievement challenges based on the particular needs of its children and young people.
This exhibition endeavours to create a visual focus and identity for the Devonport Kāhui Ako and give its ākonga the experience of displaying their art work in a public space. For many of our young participants this will be their first taste of being part of a public art show.
It will be curated by Linda Sew Hoy a teacher at Takapuna Grammar's Visual Arts Department and will feature a range of different types of media and art disciplines.
From The Peninsula 2019 will run from the 3rd September until the 21st September. There will be a community celebration on Saturday 7th September from 12.30 - 3pm. This coincides with Lake House Art Centre's open day. The North Shore Brass band will also perform at 3pm.
