Lego Education Programme


Students will thoroughly enjoy the wonder of Olafur Eliasson’s amazing collectivity project. They will be given time at the table to build and create as well as workshop time to encourage them to explore their personal responses to art works and increase their understanding of Eliasson’s project. 

Visits will be tailored to suit your class needs including:

  • Time at the table to build. (seats for 25 students at a time)
  • Short talk about the artist Olafur Eliasson and his work.
  • Hands-on activity inspired by Eliasson’s work Panoramic Awareness Pavilion 2013

Students use coloured film, making a panoramic frame to view the world outside the gallery. Students will explore and learn about the colour spectrum, shifting appearances, coloured shadow, transparency, framing and colour perception. Approx. 40 minutes including the talk.

Also, as part of the education programme, we offer an online course (containing pre and after visit materials) through our partner iQulify. Please let me know if you or any of the teachers would be interested to enroll and I will facilitate your registration.

This programme is made possible by generous funding from ‘The Hawke’s Bay Decorative & Fine Arts Society Inc.’
