Fine Arts Workshops

  • Painting and Sound - In this drawing workshop we will explore the relationships between sound, colour and mark making. Art shirts or an apron are a must as we will get messy!
  • Photography and Cyanotypes - Within one workshop explore both wearable sculpture and photography cyanotypes.

Music Workshops

  • Music Mixing and Studio Introduction - An introduction to the Commercial Music studios and your opportunity to hop on the mixing desk to mix a track using state-of-the art equipment.
  • Practice Workshop with Warren Maxwell - Warren Maxwell leads an experimental composition workshop giving students hands on experience of what it is like to balance the commercial and experimental aspects of music both as a student and within the Music Industry.

Creative Media Production (CMP) Workshop

  • Presenting for Screen - Hands-on session working with professional cameras and lights to learn tips of the trade with film director Gwen Isaac.

If you are interested in applying for our fine art or design courses, bring along some examples of your work, or work in progress and staff can advise you about your application.


If you want to check out university accommodation (The Cube and Kainga Rua on Taranaki Street) there will be a chance to do this at the end of the day, please allow up to an hour of extra time at the close of Experience Day.
