2011 - The Art & Geography learning journey to New Zealand

The Art & Geography learning journey to New Zealand was packed with activities that brought lessons to life. Highlights of the trip included a visit to a dormant volcano, Mt. Eden, a river study workshop which involved river sketching and testing and a limestone cave expedition. These experiences left many of us in awe of the beauty of natural formations which far surpass that of printed images. A visit to the Rotorua Museum not only showed us how such geographical features brought economic prosperity to the country but also the artistic and cultural transformation of the local area. We also had the opportunity to stay and interact with the indigenous Maori people which was an invaluable experience.
