We have had great fun working with Kate Buckley, an artist form New Zealand, for the last few months.
We go to know her through her mystery package first. Then we got to ‘meet’ (online) with the students in Haast School, New Zealand.
Our connection with Kate and Haast School was part of the Special Art Investigators project, which things like having Kate working with us making art, emailing Haast School and communicating with them and producing some work for an exhibition as part of Erris Arts Week, at Aras Inis Gluaire, Belmullet.
We are hoping to make a special Monopoly board, for the exhibition, using locations from our area instead of the usual streets and properties in Monopoly. We each chose a local place, for the monopoly board, drawn a picture of it and then etched it. Then we did prints of the image and we chose the best one for the board.
