Rebecca Holden inspires Grimm art

Rebecca Holden, our Artist in Residence, held a fabulous workshop on visual storytelling with Marsden students and visiting Year 6 students from local schools. She told them the rather dark Grimm's fairytale of "The Wolf and the Seven Little Kids". Then in groups of three they set about creating a section of the story using oil pastels, charcoal and chalk pastel on a painted sheet of brown paper.


You can see their awesome results on our Facebook page.

Rebecca will be exhibiting work she has created during her residency at the NZ Portrait Gallery, Shed 11, Customhouse Quay between 23 June and 1 July and we invite you to view it.
