Te tuhi art gallery

                                          Te tuhi art gallery
On monday we went on a trip to the Te tuhi art gallery, It was my first going to the art gallery because I've never been there before. I was wondering what to ask about how they made this gallery and how many years has it been functioning for 34 years that is amazing I was looking forward to go to Te tuhi art place because I love art sometimes when I am bored I like to draw.

We finally arrived to the Te tuhi art gallery It looked so small but as we went inside it was quite big, We met our instructor and his name was Jeremy he was really kind to us we learned different type of tapa names. Like the masi which is an fijian name, the ngatu which is from tonga and also the siapo which is from samoa, we made our own tapa on a piece of the first thing we had to do was scrunch the paper and use dye so it looks real then we used a brown pastel and a pencil to finish it off.

Then Jeremy took us for a look around the place and it was fun because we got to see how other cultures like to draw. after Jeremy took us into this room where we have to see how they use to film in the olden days and how they film in the new days.

It  was an good experience for me because It was my first seeing different kind of art mixed with there cultures, I would want to go there in the holidays because It was fun to see a lot of people there enjoying art    



Every Tuesday mornings some of the year 7 and 8 students walk down to Tamaki college for technology (Tech). at technology we have three different classes we have graphics, food  and hard materials. It’s good that we go to tech because we experience good things

It was fun at our first activities because we got to make chocolate brownies, the equipment we needed was cocoa,eggs,milk and we added a little bit of coconut crumbs. we had to mix the eggs with the milk so that it would have some taste in it then we put it in the oven, as I took a bite It filled my taste buds with joy.

In Graphics it is quite fun because we got to make 3D boxes. And its good to work with my friends because we get to make food and put it in the burger box, our teachers name was Ms heka she was the best because we  made a lot of different food.

Sometimes I feel like going to technology everyday because we get to experience good things. I like having good food teachers because we get to make anything like pasta or biscuits and other things on the last day.
