Description :

With this short creative arts school holiday workshop for kids aged 8-13 years, we’ll explore, through photos, paintings, visual materials, and using all of our senses, concentrate on the visual and develop our children’s abilities to see things differently. In this workshop, we’ll challenge our students to THINK by giving them tools to find ways of representing any concept. We’ll explore possible reasons for WHY we chose one way of creating and not the other, understanding how trends, culture, generation or mood affects our choices. We’ll also traverse time and space to learn basic knowledge about the HISTORY of the Visual Arts.

Date & Time:

18th-19th April 2022, 9:00 am -1:30 pm.

Meet our Instructor

Spanish instructor Pepa Torre, MA

Pepa comes from Andalucia, in the south of Spain, once the domain of Islam and referred to as Al-Andalus. She is the former Chair of the Waikato Hispano Latino Cultural Trust for which she has put great effort in implementing the communication strategy to be able to reach more members and achieve their mission of connecting people on a greater scale. She holds a BA in Audiovisual Communication and an MA in Photography as well as minor titles in areas such as Business and Education. She created PTS Foto Fun back in 2008, a Photography/videography studio focused on finding the inner self of each individual, creating a comfortable environment where one could express emotions and feel unique. She won first place in a National Photography Award held by Hewlett Packard and delivered numerous art exhibitions mostly shown throughout Europe. Everything she does is meant to feed her passion and learn more about human behaviour, concentrating on the idea of “prejudice” and “what is the same and different at the same time,” stressing the positive side of diversity. Pepa has also been a Flamenco music and dance teacher and performer since 2016, the same year when she started teaching Spanish privately in a variety of contexts. Nowadays you can find her working at the Waikato Settlement Centre and you can hear her hosting a radio program on Free FM called “¿Quiénes somos?” (“Who are we?”), based on the stories of everyday people from her Hispanic and Latin communities.

We expect our students to CREATE some items and use the newly extended ideas and vocabulary to describe their own creations and those of others in the course. A mix of listening and hands-on interactive experience will help the participants IDENTIFY some key factors that will determine why “I definitely don’t see what you see.”
