This week our whanau 17/18 went to the Art Gallery and the Library. We got on the bus an amused our selfs by singing songs. We finally arrived but before we went into the Art Gallery we went to the library. A library worker came out and read us a book called Maybe Something Beautiful. It was about a little girl who has a colourful heart and loves painting and colouring everything. After that we went outside and looked at street art. One of the pieces of street art was a girl named Maddison. She had words around her and numbers. Then we had morning tea. We played on the playground. Then we went to the Art Gallery. We saw some tui’s and we saw Maddison again. An Art Gallery person came and told us about the paintings. After that we had a question the question was if you look at Madison and the tui paintings what can you see that are the same things on the big nursery rhyme painting. The answer was the tui in the magnifying glass and Maddison’s glasses. Then we went up stairs and looked at a weird but cool looking painting on plastic and when you went to the end of it you could see a woman with blue flowers all over her. After that we saw a painting that looked like a song was flowing slowly around the room it was beautiful that painting was made by Lucy McLauchlan. Sadly it was time to go back to school so we hopped on the bus and left.
