Auckland Art Gallery

The Year 5’s went to the Auckland Art Gallery last week on Friday. We went there to learn about Art and to see what can move. There were a lot of  helpers for example: Alfa , John and Mrs Tepania. The first place our group went to was the Lego.The Lego was the best part, for me because you got to build a tower or name anything.

After morning tea, our teacher Miss Jacobson walked us to the second place and that was the studio. The studio was a great place because it had a lot of artworks, we had to use pictures and symbols to tell a story for example: A birthday,Christmas parade and a party.

Once we finished our lunch we went into the gallery and looked at some art. We saw a painting called the Fortune Teller. The Fortune Teller is a when curators tells story.

I felt really happy at the Auckland Art Gallery because we had a lot of fun and learned heaps of things.
