Corbans Estate Summer School 2013


Summer School 2013

An enriching arts experience with leading NZ and International artists

_____________________________________________________________

From the 14th to the 18th of January 2013, inspiring and experienced artists will come together at Corban Estate Arts Centre’s Summer School in West Auckland. This stimulating annual event attracts participants from all over New Zealand.

The array of eleven diverse courses are taught by some of the country’s best practitioners in their field as well as some notable international arts practitioners, including printmaker Alexis Neal, bronze sculptor David Reid, contemporary stencil artist Hayley King (aka Flox) and award winning novelist Linda Olsson. Painter Evan Woodruffe will share his techniques using oils while Dagmar Dyck will explore new horizons in mixed media painting. Craft artist Anna Browne will lead a course in fabric arts, while processes and techniques in glass casting will be taught by Fiona Rennie Schweiters and an exploration of sculpture and installation using various media will be led by sculptor Stephen Woodward. For the first time, the Summer School offers courses in contemporary dance with dancers from Atamira Dance Company and sacred song with composer and ethnographer, Jyoshna La Trobe. The length of courses varies from two and a half days to a full five days.

In addition to spending time in the course of their choice, participants may choose to attend an evening where each tutor/artist gives a brief presentation of some aspect of their arts practice. These widely varied presentations are always a much anticipated element of the Summer School stimulating ideas for those attending. Some of these tutor/artists will be part of an exhibition being held in Corban Estate’s Homestead Galleries. Another optional element of the Summer School is a guided visit to the public art installations of Auckland’s Wynyard Quarter.

The Summer School provides participants with a week of arts experiences where they can expand their imagination, master new skills and push the boundaries of their talent. The spacious environment of the Corban Estate, gives participants the opportunity to meet others with similar interests and enthusiasm for creating art and often develop new friendships.

Set in the character filled industrial winery buildings of the Corban Estate Arts Centre, with its parklands and handy on site café, the arts centre is a twenty minute drive from central Auckland and there is abundant parking on the Estate. It is also only a ten minute walk to the Henderson railway station and town centre.
