Te Tuhi is supporting the Light based workshop and Spray painting workshop at Te Oro for the school holidays.
Explore the ideas of light and play with mediums and techniques. This light based workshop is inspired by the Te Ara Rama Matariki Light Trail, which will be on in Maybury Reserve behind Te Oro from Saturday 1st July to Saturday 8th of July from 6-9pm.

Our Light based workshop runs from 3:30pm to 5:30pm at Te Oro with a show case of the light artwork being created to celebrate the final day of the Light Trail on Saturday 8th of July.

During your workshop you will look at some artists who are inspired by light and create a light sculpture and a moving image to be projected onto walls of Glen Innes.
If you're aged between 13 – 18, join us for a creative adventure.

To coincide with the Light Trail this workshop begins at the end of the second to last week of school, and ends on the Saturday after the last day of the school term 2. Saturday 1st and Saturday 8th of July 3.30-5.30.
