Printmaking is a popular way to learn how to reproduce artworks as multiples. As well, it’s easy to change colours for effect, exploring how the same image looks in different hues.

Using these same prints we are able to use paint and gold leaf to add detail – using our orginal art works as if it were a page in a colouring book.

Once we learn about how to build a painting up, we will frame your work, showing how much you have learnt and achieved over the term.

Rangimarie McDowell

Rangimarie McDowell of Ngati Hine/Ngati Pakeha whakapapa, she is currently studying towards a Master in Maori Visual Arts. Rangimarie is interested in Maori cosmology and Matauranga Maori(Knowledge). Understanding Post-colonial theorem and utilising science as a tool, lead her to research the essence of Maori cosmology. This formula has created a healing within the self of which she would like to share. This is a way of creating keys for us all to connect to the essence of Tikanga Maori. Having an object that symbolises these ideas and feelings is a magical way to enact your own knowing, something Rangimarie believes’s is undervalued in our world. Maori are holistic in their understanding of the environment and having a consciousness of this can create a realised belief that we must look after each and every element that bonds us to our whakapapa, atua and our cosmology
