We have received a number of lovely drawings and designs from the Kristin Junior School in Auckland, New Zealand.

“The students designed and painted their art during an after school art class, taught by Visual Art teacher Timea Willemse. They were given the brief and ideas were shared before starting their individual work. We are very pleased with their efforts and hope that you enjoy viewing them too!”

A huge thank you to Principal Diana Patchett for agreeing to take part, to all the students for their wonderful work and to Timea Willemse Visual Arts and Jane Sargeant Year 3 Teacher who assisted. The school logo of a stylised dove has been used to great effect in the children’s designs.

This is the New Zealand design from the year 10 students in Botany Downs Secondary school. Thank you to Jennifer Kirkham and Megan Cunningham who masterminded the International Peace Quilt Project in this school. Also a very special thank you to Demi Seymour who created this wonderful design which was the winner from a school-wide competition.

“I was inspired by my friends. We were making a joke and I came up with the idea of a kiwi and the moon. It’s kind of random.” Demi
