Make Like a Tree nurtures children's imagination by providing space, materials, time, support and inspiration for creative activity.
In The Make Like a Tree Studio, children can explore their own creative language through play, experimentation, collaboration, drawing, painting, collecting, assemblage, story telling, sound, music, movement and mixed media.
There is a particular focus on the uniqueness of our natural environment. Children will become familiar with New Zealand's native birds, animals, trees, plants and more through their creative initiatives..
In the studio accessibility is key. Materials and resources are readily available for our young artists.. Found objects and unwanted materials are curated in the space for children to investigate or transform into artworks. Making, story telling, construction, moving, dancing, arranging etc are all supported in the studio facilitated by Cath O'Brien
