About me

Student artworks from schools have been on show in the the Ministry's head office buildings since 2005. Judy Matthew, who initiated the displays, wanted more schools to participate and more people to be able to see the student artwork that Ministry staff have enjoyed, so set up an online gallery on the tki. Earlier artworks are accessible from: http://www.tki.org.nz/r/arts/student_gallery/moe_exhibition/index_e.php Since 2009 the Artwork has also been exhibited at Parliament in the offices of the Minister of Education and the Assoc. Minister of Education.
