One of the fundamental features of NZ Sculpture OnShore is our commitment to engaging young people with art.
To this end we have developed three distinct elements of the exhibition specifically for children and young people. These are:
Children's Sculpture Exhibition: an exhibition of artwork by children from fifteen schools and art groups around Auckland.
Education programme: an opportunity for out-of-classroom learning for children aged 8-14 focused on a visit to the exhibition. Alongside this opportunity to experience major works of outdoor art, each group is provided with a professionally designed education pack to make the most of the visit back in the classroom.
Kidzone: a fun activity-based programme that gives children the opportunity to make art and participate in a group art project. Kidzone operates during both weekends of the exhibition.
