On Monday 3rd of May, the senior art class, Whaea Levonne, Whaea Vicki, Mrs Kingii and myself went up to Auckland’s Spark Arena to view the Vincent Van Gogh Alive Exhibition.
For me it was an eye opening experience as it was my first time seeing some of Van Gogh’s art pieces in real life. Within the arena there were three areas that showed different things. I quite liked the last area which was the sunflower room. It was really pretty and the lighting was very good for photos. After seeing the exhibition we went to the Auckland War Memorial Museum to check out what they had on display. I quite liked what they had to show in there Maori Exhibition Area as there was a piece of a Maori waka that’s shown at Turangawaewae Regatta. And what’s most interesting about this Maori artefact to me is that it is a carving and my grandfather was one of many who helped make it. I also liked the war memorial level as I was able to look at medals kept in draws for display and I could see what each medal was for and so on. It was quite interesting. Afterwards we went to to Sylvia Park to have a feed. Which I would like to take the time to thank Mrs Kingii for shouting me.. lol you’re the best!! Anyways to me the whole experience was mean as! And definitely worth it. And on behalf of the Senior Art Class I’d like to thank the teachers for putting this trip on for us. Appreciate y’all!
